Goan king prawn curry.

As it's summer I thought I'd try to make some season appropriate dishes. Any prawn or seafood dish instantly reminds me of my holidays and my love for al fresco dining with the sun shining outside. I've never been to the Asian continent before, but sure have travelled there through my culinary journeys. Alongside my Keralan fish curry, this Goan king prawn curry is my favourite Indian summer dish. Prawns can be pricey but I brought a packet from Iceland for £3 which I think is reasonable. I usually use reduced fat coconut milk but it was the full fat variety that I used to make this delicious week. The flavouring of the coconut milk and the seasoning made this dish delicious.
Here is how my Goan king prawn curry turned out:
