When most people cook a curry its usually with bog-standard chicken breast or maybe some lamb if they're feeling adventurous. Little do they know that prawn curries are delicious.

Even if you're not a fish or seafood fan then this prawn curry would probably be a perfect introduction to fish curries. It doesn't have an overpowering 'fishy taste', this curry is light, fragrant and the prawns are little meaty mouthfuls that make this dish a winner.

A secret of cooking a good curry recipe is to always slow cook your onions. Cook them on a low heat for at least 10 minutes until they start to turn golden brown and caramelise. This brings out a lot more flavour and adds depth to your curry compared to cooking them quickly on a high heat.
