I know it’s a lot of ingredients. It is however worth it when you taste the dish!
How to make it:
1. Place your turmeric, cumon and mace in a bowl. Finely chop your ginger and garlic and add it. Add a small amount of water and grind into a paste. Helps if you have a pestle and mortar.
2. Finely chop and fry your onion. Stir on your paste once the onion has softened and cook for 1 minute before adding your tomatoes. Fill the tomato tin with water and add before adding your lemon zest and juice and your curry leaves.
3. Sprinkle your nutmeg into the mix and cook on a low heat for 45 minutes to an hour until the sauce has thickened and reduced and you are left with a wonderful fragrant prawn curry. Garnish with your fresh coriander and serve in warm bowls.
This is a perfect winter dish and proper comfort food. Experiment with the dish but in my experience the key is to really getting your paste right at the beginning.
