For those days when you are craving Indian food but don’t feel like spending time in the kitchen, this prawn curry with broccoli won’t disappoint you.
When in Sri Lanka I participated in a cooking class, the teacher was an amazing woman, she invited us into her house and showed all her tricks to make the best Indian food, we even made our own coconut cream!!!
The trick is to season properly, herbs and spices will take any dish up to the next level. You could always go for the premixed curry spice, but it’s really worth it to make your own and it will only take you a minute longer, I promise!!
