A recipe inspired by his mother's prawn curry, Chef Dion shares a recipe that is close to his heart. A prawn curry with a delicious aromatic fragrance  of Indian spices that fills the kitchen!



  1. Prawn Curry

    • In a large pan add the oil and onions. Simmer on a low heat for 10 minutes until the onions are translucent.
    • Add the chilli and curry leaves, and simmer for 5 minutes.
    • Stir in the cumin and black mustard seeds and allow to temper for 5 minutes.
      Now add the garlic, ginger, turmeric, chilli powder, coriander and cumin. Gently stir occasionally for 15 minutes on a low heat until all the spices are cooked out.
    • Add the prawns and mix well with all the flavours in the pan, be sure to coat all the prawns.
    • Combine the lime and lemon juice with the sugar and grated tomatoes.
      Add to the pot and bring to a medium heat. Deglaze the bottom of the pot and lift up all the flavour from the bottom of the pot.
      Allow to cook for 10 minutes maximum.
    • Remove from the heat, adjust seasoning and add the fresh coriander.
      Allow the curry to rest for 2 hours before eating – this helps the flavours to marry.
  2. Serving Suggestion

    • Best served with plain, steamed basmati rice or freshly baked naan bread.
