Healthy Prawn Curry by Life’s a Treat
I had been craving a really good prawn curry for a while when, one fine day on Instagram, my friend Puveshree from the blog Life’s a Treat posted this recipe on her stories. She has such skill with combining the different spices and she also posted each step with a video and made it all look so easy. As she does with all her amazing bowls and healthy recipes.
Luxury prawns on a budget
The perfect opportunity to use her wonderful recipe presented itself when I had to select a guest recipe for the One Grand Family Challenge. It was a no brainer! There are quite a few spices involved and thankfully with clever meal planning, I had the room available in my budget for a bit of a luxury meal. Thankfully, Food Lover’s Market also has an enormous selection of spices and there was not one item on the list that I couldn’t find there. Their seafood section often has great value for money offers and I wasn’t cutting anything else out to be able to afford the prawns.
I decided at the last minute to make some roti to go with the curry, because you simply can’t have curry without roti, and the recipe is also included for those who have been asking for it. The boys went absolutely mad for the roti and mopped up all that delicious curry with it in a flash. Not being a curry fundi, I did use a little less chili powder in the recipe as I was worried that it might be too spicy for the boys. It ended up being just perfect.
Making the Roti
You will need the following:
- 400g cake flour
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
- half teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- half cup flour for dusting the work surface
- 250ml hot water
1. Add 350g flour into a bowl. Add the oil. Add the hot water. Mix with a tablespoon since the dough will be quite hot.
2. Take some of the remaining flour and dust the worktop. Remove the dough from your dish then place on the work top.
Let the dough rest for about 5 minutes while you prepare the butter and heat the pan.4.Melt the butter then return to the dough. Break off a small piece of about 8cm diameter then roll into a large circle shape. Spread some melted butter over the circle shaped dough.
