An authentic Bengali seafood curry. It could be made entirely with prawns but in this version I'm using a mixture of king prawns and cod fillet. Any white fish would do.

This is a fairly quick curry, nice and creamy with lots of coconut flavours. As with all authentic Indian curries there are lots of whole spices that you are not supposed to eat. Pick them out as you eat. You'll get a surprise if you bite down on a cardamom pod or a clove!

  1. Add the seafood pieces to a Lock & Lock box together with the turmeric and salt, close the ld and shake gently to coat evenly
  2. Heat the ghee in a wok or frying pan, not too hot or you'll have a kitchen full of smoke
  3. Stir-fry the seafood for a few minutes turning often
  4. Remove the cooked seafood, place in a clean bowl and set to one side
  5. On a low heat in the same pan add all the spices apart from the chillies and stir-fry for 2 or 3 minutes so the ghee is nicely flavoured
  6. Pour in the coconut milk and add the coconut block, cook for another few minutes
  7. Add the prawns and chillies, bring to a simmer then cook gently cook for 10 minutes
