This is a low carb recipe so not so good for those worried about fat content, but really yummy. I typed it out to send to Laguna and thought I may as well stick it on here as well incase anyone else wanted to have a go.

Creamy Curried Prawns

1oz/30g butter
1tbl olive oil
1 onion sliced
1clove garlic crushed (I use a couple)
½tbl curry powder
1 red chilli, seeded and chopped ( I used crushed out of the jar, about ½ tsp)
¾ cup chicken stock (I use stock powder mixed in water)
1 red capsicum /bell pepper finely sliced, pieces about 2 inches
1tsp parsley chopped (I don’t bother with this)
Salt & freshly ground black pepper
1lb/500g raw green prawn meat, deveined
½tbl cornflour/starch mixed with 2tbl cold water

Heat the butter and oil in a medium saucepan and sauté the onion and garlic until tender
Add the curry powder and chilli, stir over low heat for 3 minutes
Add the chicken stock, cover and simmer for 5 minutes.
Add the capsicum/bell pepper, parsley, salt, pepper and cream and bring to boil.
Add the prawns and cover and simmer until prawns turn pink.
Thicken with the cornflour/starch.

I serve with hot basmati rice. And sometimes throw a bag of mixed frozen vegies in if I feel like it.

We tried Lolabelle's recipe last night and it was excellent - highly recommend you try it!

We also cooked Dry Spiced Potatoes with Cauliflower and Broccoli (Aloo Gobi) and it went really with the curried prawns - see new thread for recipe
