Coconut Prawn Curry Request

A traditional curry recipe using king prawns and coconut would be good please mate.
Enjoy your trip.
Thanks
Mick

Try this recipe from Rick Steins India book.
It was unexpectedly very good!

Like the look of this recipe,DalPuri simple in preparation,but tasty.Away for a few days in the New Forest,self catering,this should go down well,thanks to yourself and Rick Stein.

Yes thanks DP.

Interesting the 'and / or' use of bay leaf / cinnamon bark...?

That's because ( maybe for the first time, Rick had smelt or tasted tej patta and understood that ) they are from the same tree, unlike European bay.

p.s. anyone looking to make this curry and expecting it to be coconutty, may be disappointed.
It has quite an earthy taste due to the amount of turmeric, but overall has a very old school flavour and smell that lingers.
Also, be aware that reducing by half requires a good heat and stir, so you might want to add your prawns a bit later than suggested.  ;)
