Indian Prawn Masala
Cook / Prep Time: 25 min

This is a great sweet curry even for people who aren’t crazy about curry.  The sauce is thick and smooth, with a sweet and tangy finish.  - Jen

  • Start by marinating the prawns in the lemon juice, with a touch of water, the cumin and some salt and pepper. Let marinate 10-15 minutes.
  • In a small chopper, puree the ginger and garlic with a touch of water to make a smooth paste. Remove paste from processor and reserve.
  • Secondly, in the processor combine the diced tomatoes, green chilies and cilantro. Be sure to pulse them so they are chopped coarsely and remain slightly chunky.
  • Heat oil over high heat in a large skillet. Add the onion and sauté until golden. (4-5 minutes)
  • Next, add the ginger garlic paste mixture and sauté it for 2 minutes. Next, add the spices and the chunky tomato mixture. Stir well and add the yogurt. Cook for 10 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to low, and simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Lastly, add the prawns and cook them for 4-5 minutes. Serve immediately. I recommend serving this over basmati rice.
