Tonight we’re having another Indian meal using the basic curry recipe from last weekend at the request of my son and daughter in law. I’m doing a Goan Prawn Curry with the Kashmiri Potatoes, homemade Mango Chutney (recipe to follow another day!), naan bread and plain boiled rice.

For authentic taste always use fresh large prawns for this. It’s very simple though a lot of ingredients!

Rotten heck we’ve just finished the meal and once again I realise my blogging is lacking as I forgot to take a final picture of the curry! The family decided it is a good reason to repeat the event again next weekend so I can do the photos. They all agreed it was really tasty though!


2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 medium onion chopped
1 heaped tsp garlic paste
15 curry leaves
1/2 tsp chilli flakes
1 tsp mustard seeds
