Chicken and Prawn Curry

This dish has many ingredients and it looks a lot more complicated than it really is.

What you need:

½ kg chicken fillet cut into pieces

½ kg prawns peeled and deveined

2 tomatoes

1 onion sliced

3 tablespoons cooking oil

1 tin of coconut milk or cream (I prefer the cream)

3 tablespoons masala or curry powder

½ teaspoon of turmeric powder

½ teaspoon ground ginger and garlic

4 cardamom pods

1 teaspoon paprika

1 stem curry leaf

2 cinnamon sticks

Salt to taste

How to do it:

In a saucer add cut up tomatoes, curry leaf, turmeric powder, ground ginger, garlic, masala, cardamom pods and paprika (be careful not to burn the mixture). In a large cooking pot add oil, onion, 2 cinnamon sticks and fry until onions are lightly browned. Next add tomatoes mixture and simmer on high for 5 minutes then add chicken pieces, simmer for about 5 minutes. Add the coconut milk and bring to the boil. Once boiling add the prawns turning the mixture very gently with a wooden spoon. Simmer for 5 minutes. Discard the cinnamon and cardamom.

Serve with savoury Basmati rice.
