A wonderful lively curry that won’t burn your ears off but lets you really enjoy all of the flavors.This basic recipe changes according to what I have lying around.

I have grown up eating prawn dishes of different varieties but during winters when my mom use to cook prawns with new baby potatoes, we use to ask for more rice and curry and always ended up over eating.

So, all the seafood lovers, here is an easy and quick prawn curry recipe that best pairs with any rice. The curry is tangy, full of flavour and pretty filling, so treat yourself to a special solo supper of spiced shellfish.

It is a lovely light supper for these winter days.
