Aromatic prawn and cashew nuts green curry


This is a very mellow tasting dish that has a rich creamy taste of the coconut sauce with the nice crunchy texture of toasted cashews, soft prawns and a kick of chili! Goes perfectly with rice noodles. 

All you need is:

500 grams of peeled and deveined prawns

1 onion,  chopped

Thumb-sized piece of ginger,  peeled and chopped

4 garlic cloves,  peeled and chopped

2 green chillies,  chopped

2 table spoons of olive oil

2 table spoons of garam masala

150 grams of unsalted cashew nuts

100 grams of sugar peas

100 grams of green beans

Tin of shredded bamboo shoots

Green curry paste

Tin of coconut milk


Put the onion, ginger, chillies and garlic into a hot pan. Fry for few minutes then add cashew nuts and fry for another two minutes.  Add the green curry paste and garam masala and cook for a further two minutes. 
Add the prawns and cook for two minutes then add the coconut milk and bring to the boil. Lower the heat and simmer adding all the vegetables.  Cover with a lid for further 5 minutes.  Season with salt and black pepper and serve with rice noodles.
