Prawn curry

From Cookipedia

This is the recipe from my Indian cookery evening class from years ago. It's quite involved but worth the effort, especially if you have all of the ingredients to hand.

It's strange, writing this, I have an odd yearning for the 'communal cooking' that I enjoyed from those far off lessons. If you get a chance to try evening classes then do have a go, it's great fun - it also removed all of the mystique of cookery for me.

Serving suggestions

Serve hot with plain boiled rice and naan breads

Peeling ginger

There is no need to peel ginger. As a result of attending a Thai cookery demo, we have learnt that peeling ginger is unnecessary unless for aesthetic purposes as the skin is high in fibre and full of flavour. However, do remove any bits that have become tough or woody.
