  1. Combine the garlic, ginger, chilli, salt and turmeric in the container of a food processor or blender. Process to a smooth paste. Set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add onion, and cook until golden. Mix in the spice paste, and cook for a few minutes to release the oils.
  3. Add prawns, and cook for a few minutes until pink, then add the tomatoes and coconut milk. Cover, and simmer for about 5 minutes, then remove the lid and simmer an additional 5 minutes to thicken the sauce. Stir in the fresh basil during the last minute of cooking.

Really niceI forgot to blend the chilli so ended up blending chilli and onion with paste - not sure if that made any difference .... It was a really nice tasty curry, thoroughly enjoyed by all.-01 Sep 2016

this is my favorite dish to cook. i substitute the turmeric with ground cumin, simmer at a higher temp for thickness, and serve over rice. good stuff.-19 Sep 2005


Although this wasn't bad, I was disappointed. I followed the recipe to the T, except I used a 5.5 oz can of coconut milk, which I believe is less than 1 cup. Still, the mixture came out soupy and had to be strained. My food processor (a standard Cuisinart) wouldn't blend the ginger and jalepeno to a paste, the best I could get was a fine dice. I expected more flavor from the recipe, but it turned out rather bland. Perhaps the shrimp should be marinated in the coconut milk/jalepeno/tumeric/ginger mixture?-25 Apr 2004
