Kashmir Spiced Prawns

This is a fresh, mildly spicy curry – and very quick to make. If you would like it a bit more fiery, I suggest you add ¼ teaspoon of chilli powder. Another point: if you don't want to grind your spices, you can use instead 1 level teaspoon hot curry powder, ½ level teaspoon turmeric and ½ level teaspoon ground ginger.

 
 

This recipe is from Delia Smith's One is Fun

Method

If you're using fresh spices, start off by grinding them finely using a pestle and mortar. Then in a medium-sized saucepan, heat the oil and fry the onion, pepper and garlic in it for 5 minutes.

Next add the spices, stirring them around to allow the heat to draw out their flavour and aroma.

After about 5 minutes, stir in the chopped tomatoes and cucumber, stir thoroughly and let the whole thing simmer gently (without a lid) for about 6 minutes before adding the prawns, chutney juice and yoghurt.

Allow these to heat through gently for another 5 minutes without it boiling, then serve with spiced or plain basmati rice.

Chinese-style recipes are often perfect for one, because many of them are made at top speed. The trouble is that Westerners are often inclined to add a little extra cooking time, and the end result can be just that little bit overdone.

I've adapted this from a Jewish recipe in which the cakes are coated in matzo meal before frying. Failing that of course wholewheat or even plain flour will do perfectly well.
