Savory and Delicious: Lemongrass Curry with Coconut Ginger Prawns (Gluten-free)

I’ve been cooking curry for years. My family loves it and frequently requests it.  Over time I discovered different ways to make curry. It’s really interesting with all of the different variations, and of course there’s no end to it.

I tried out this curry recipe from a Singapore cookbook with great results. The lemongrass and ginger bring the curry to another level of taste. It’s by far one of the best curry dishes I’ve come across- savory and delicious. My family all voted thumbs up.

Here is the recipe for Lemongrass Curry with Coconut Ginger Prawns (gluten free).

Ingredients

2 lbs of prawns (I usually use tiger prawns)

Sauce:

3” of ginger root, peeled and cut to small pieces

12 shallots, peeled

9 cloves garlic, peeled

2 tsp oil

2 stalks lemongrass, cut into 2” pieces and crush

1 teaspoon turmeric powder

½ teaspoon red pepper flakes (or ¼ tsp, if you don’t like too spicy)

1 cup of water

1 cup of coconut milk

½” of ginger root, peeled and shredded

Salt and ground black pepper

Instruction

Step 1 
- Peel prawn, put shells aside. Devein and clean the prawns.

Step 2 
- Put 3” of ginger root, 12 shallots and 9 cloves garlic in a food processor and process them to paste; add oil if needed.

Step 3 
- Heat up oil in a pan (or wok), add ground paste, prawn shells and lemongrass; cook for 3-5 minutes until shells turned pink. Then add water, turmeric powder, red pepper flakes and coconut milk; bring to boil, turn to medium heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

Step 4 – Drain sauce, discard all the solids and return the sauce to the pan. Bring to boil, add prawns and shredded ginger, cook for another 5 minutes or until prawns are fully cooked. Season with salt and black pepper.

Step 5  – Serve with rice.
