Are you making this? 
750 grams prawn cutlets; (shelled and deveined)
2 tbsp peanut oil
1 tbsp turmeric
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon chilli powder; (or use fresh chopped)
1/4 tsp mace
2 cloves garlic; (crushed together)
1 onion; (finely chopped)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon; or a stick
1 tbsp curry leaves
400 grams crushed tomatoes
1 lemon; (juice and zest)
4 tbsp coriander; fresh chopped
tin coconut cream

Original recipe makes 4



1. Mix together powdered ingredients (turmeric, coriander, cumin, chilli, mace) and make into a paste with a little water. Mix in the ginger-garlic mixture.

2. Heat the oil in a fry pan and sauté the prawns (do not overcook). Season with salt and cracked pepper. Drain and set aside. In the same pan gently fry the onion until it softens.

3. Stir in the spice paste and cook for a minute or so before adding the tomatoes. Add a little water (about three quarters of the empty tomato can). Squeeze in the lemon juice and zest, add the curry leaves and coconut cream and simmer gently until thickened. Remove the curry leaves and cinnamon stick.

4. Add the prawns and toss through. Serve on top of steaming hot rice and garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
