If you are a seafood lover, chances are that you will like prawns too and if you like prawns that its given that you will relish this ginger garlic based prawn curry, which is really easy to cook. Recently my partner bought prawns to cook at home (he loves king / tiger prawns) and asked me to suggest a recipe. He had recently made Prawn Skewers and this time he said he want to make some gravy based thing. I had been having a few busy weeks and hence I suggested this easy to cook recipe of “ginger garlic prawn curry” for him to try.

I love experimenting with my recipes and hence I asked my partner if he would like to have a creamy gravy or normal gravy, and not to my surprise, it was creamy gravy, hence this recipe is made by creating a paste from onion, ginger and garlic.

I believe that this same recipe could also be tried with fish, though duration of cooking for fish will be little longer compared to prawn (depending on type of fish).

Again, times like these is when I simply take backseat (don’t cook) and simply pass instructions on how to cook. Only if I was eating non-vegetarian food, I would have not hesitated to cook too 🙂
