#73 Hot & Sour Prawn Curry

How I cook:

Hot & Sour Prawn Curry - You will need:
Frying Pan

Fresh or frozen Prawns (shown here fresh Langostinos)
Red Onion(s)
Chopped Tomato
Lump of Palm Sugar
Tamarind paste
Water (some)
Garam Masala Spices:
1tsp Black Pepper, 1tsp Clove, 1tsp cinnamon, 2tsp Cardamon, Bay leaves (alternatively buy ready made garam masala mix).
2tsp Cumin, salt to taste.
Sometimes I put in some fresh Chillies or 1tsp Chilli powder.

Make tamarind paste by soaking pulp (or buy ready made).
Fry onions a bit, then add garlic, then garam masala spices & cumin, then tomato.
5 minutes later add sugar and tamarind, then water.
Make a sloppy sauce.

Cook this sauce for 20 minutes - or more (the more the better).

Add prawns for a few minutes.
Garnish with fresh coriander serve with rice or dhal.
