Curried Prawns


Curried Prawns is the ideal winter warmer - served on a bed of rice (and I don't mind a nice glass of white wine on the side).

2 tablespoons butter

1 large onion, finely chopped

1 stalk of celery, finely chopped

1 tablespoon ginger

1 tablespoon curry powder

1 teaspoon dry mustard

1/2 teaspoon turmeric

1 teaspoon salt

dash of seasoned pepper

1 tablespoon cornflour

1 cup chicken stock

1/2 cup white wine

2 tablespoons lemon juice


Melt butter in a pan, add onion and saute until golden.

Add celery and cook, stirring 2-3 minutes.

Stir in ginger, curry, mustard, turmeric, salt, pepper and cornflour, then gradually stir in sotck and wine.

Bring to the boil, stirring constantly.

Lower heat and simmer gently, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes.

Serve immediately with rice, and enjoy.
