Cool weather curry

When the weather turns chilly, we think there’s nothing better than a great curry. The team at Spier Wine Farm has shared this mouthwatering recipe for a deliciously mild and fragrant Cape Malay-inspired prawn curry. We suggest you pair it with a glass of Spier 21 Gables Chenin Blanc.

The great thing about a seafood curry is that it cooks in much less time than a meaty curry. This simple, fragrant prawn dish is slightly sweet and deliciously mild (add a dash of chilli powder if you like yours hotter). It also works very well with fresh black mussels or cubed firm white fish.

This recipe is made with trimmed, shelled prawn tails. Although these are easy to eat, whole prawns (de-veined, head on) will add even more flavour. If you don’t mind the shells or eating with your hands, choose them instead (about 1kg).

Cape Malay-style Prawn Curry

Serves four

Ingredients:

  • 30ml (2 tablespoons) vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, grated or finely chopped
  • 1 knob fresh ginger, grated or finely chopped
  • 15ml (1 tablespoon) roasted masala curry powder (or medium/mild curry powder)
  • 5ml (1 teaspoon) ground cumin
  • 5ml (1 teaspoon) ground turmeric
  • 1 x 400ml can coconut milk
  • 5ml (1 teaspoon) sugar
  • About 500g prawn tails, shelled and de-veined (see note above)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh coriander leaves to serve
  • Cooked basmati or jasmine rice to serve

Method:

  • In a wide, deep pan or pot, add the oil and fry the onions until soft and lightly browned. Add the garlic and ginger and fry for 30 seconds, then add the masala, cumin and turmeric and stir for a minute until the bottom of the pan goes dry.
  • Add the coconut milk, sugar and prawns, stir and bring to a simmer. Cover with a lid and simmer for 5 to 8 minutes until the prawns are just cooked.
  • Remove from the heat, season generously with salt and pepper. Serve hot in bowls over rice, topped with fresh coriander.
  • Serve with a glass of Spier 21 Gables Chenin Blanc.
