Our latest dish is a delicate curry featuring the classic spices grown in Kerala - mustard seeds, turmeric and warm spices like cinnamon and clove. Seafood is inabundance off the coconut-tree lined coast so we're going with king prawns. Kerala’s rich trading heritage means that fusion and influences from other culturescan often be seen in their modern day dishes, which is why you'll see courgette in our version. To be truly authentic, serve your curry and rice on a banana leaf!

Really simple and really tasty

Rebecca - Sep 14, 2018

Used chicken instead

Jane - Sep 14, 2018

This arrived as a substitute pack. Unfortunately my husband won't eat prawns so used chicken (sorry Simply Cook, I appreciate the spice blend isn't intended for this). He thought it was good but too rich for me.

Helen - Sep 14, 2018


Peter - Sep 12, 2018

Really good

Sarah - Sep 11, 2018

Very tasty. Added mangetout instead of courgette.

chelsey - Sep 10, 2018

I did not like it I found the flavours boring I wouldn't order it again. The Keralan curry doesn't live up to the Nyonya or the Bali in my eyes.

Terri - Sep 10, 2018

Will be ordering this again

Lydia - Sep 09, 2018

Super tasty would have again

Kate - Sep 05, 2018

Lovely. Very tasty

Christine - Sep 05, 2018

Too mild and creamy for my taste

Barbara - Sep 04, 2018

Absolutely delicious I bet it would be good with chicken too.

Stephen - Sep 03, 2018

Slightly too salty, otherwise would have been 5*

Katy - Sep 02, 2018

Prawns only need 2 mins and we like a full tin of coconut milk. It's delicious!

Rachel - Sep 01, 2018

This is quite spicy, really warming, the rice soaks up the sauce and it’s delicious. It put a twinkle in my husband’s eye - he loved it! I used 160ml coconut cream rather than 200ml coconut milk
