Saturday night is the night I like to make something a bit special for Hubby, his choice is usually Steak, I had planned Duck Breast for tonight, but Youngest is in, so as I only had 2 breasts (no sniggering at the back 😂) I changed it to curry for 3.
I am making this sauce in the Thermomix, but this Link will take you to the recipe I am using and gives a non Thermomix method too – I have, of course fiddled with the recipe to suit us, but that is the joy of cooking 😉
I bought a huge pack of enormous prawns from Iceland, and £8 I thought it was a good price for a luxury item – I would normally use Aldi’s ones at £2.50 for a much smaller pack, but that’s enough for 2 meals. This big bag will make 6/8 good meals.
To the Thermomix bowl I add 2 peeled and halved medium onions, 3 fat peeled cloves of garlic, a sliced thumb sized piece of ginger and a deseeded red chilli – blitz these at speed 8 for a few seconds till finely chopped, and scrape down the bowl.
Add a glug of rapeseed or Veg oil, and a teaspoon of turmeric, 2 teaspoons of dried coriander and 2 teaspoons of madras curry powder or in my case a fat tablespoon of ready made paste. Cook at varoma heat, speed 1 for 4/5 minutes till softened and smelling lush.
At this point, scrape down the bowl again, and add a tin of coconut milk, and the juice of a lemon and blitz on speed 8 for 30 seconds
Add a tin of chopped tomatoes, scrape down again and then cook for 10 mins, reverse speed 1 heat 100.
At this point, I tip it out into a chefs pan, and cook down a little, taste and season, add 100g of frozen peas, and approx 6/8 huge prawns per person. Cook over a medium heat, a drizzle of double cream or yoghurt adding chopped fresh coriander before serving.
I am serving this with brown rice and homemade flatbreads I made and froze earlier this week – but have it whatever makes your day.
Happy Saturday 🤗
