  • 700g Dinko Spencer Gulf King Prawns (shelled and deveined)
  • 3tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • 2 tsp crushed garlic
  • 4 tsp chilli powder
  • juice and rind of half a lemon

  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • ½ cup fresh cream (optional)

1 Place the prawns, chilli powder, garlic, turmeric, cumin, lemon rind, salt and lemon juice in a bowl. Gently mix to ensure prawns are evenly covered, and then refrigerate for one hour.

2 Heat oil and flash fry the prawns in batches, then set aside. Be careful not to let the oil burn.

3 Once the prawns are fried, add another tablespoon of oil to the pan (only if needed).

4 Add onion. Fry until golden brown.

5 Add ginger paste and sauté for one minute, then add curry leaf and chillies. Add chilli powder, cumin, coriander and turmeric, and cook for one minute.

6 Add the tomatoes and season with salt. Cover and simmer until the sauce thickens and the tomatoes are fully cooked.

7 If you're using cream add it now and heat through.

8 Add prawns to the sauce, bring to a boil, then turn off the heat.

9 Serve with rice or bread, and garnish with coriander.
