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!

Keralan Prawn Curry Reviews

Once again my partner cooked this but put pepper and green beans. I'm getting him used to cooking as I can't cook until my shoulder and collarbone are healed. He's getting better but I read it he cooked it. It was lovely and spicey and the coconut milk sweetened it. We both loved it but the sauce wasn't thick enough for us so next time we will reduce the sauce some more. Will try some other prawn dishes. It's good if you love the heat kick ????

I'm my list of 'never have again'. Not too fond of cloves and star anise.

Jonathan - Dec 06, 2019

A delicious and simple to make curry, will definitely order again. But make your own coconut rice with the other half of the coconut milk!

Anthony - Dec 06, 2019

Fab flavours

Shaun - Dec 06, 2019

Made this in to a vegetable curry using cauliflower and green beans.. lovely

Angela - Dec 05, 2019

Used chicken instead of prawn. Delicious

Kasia - Dec 01, 2019

With bigger package of prawns and some extra greens (I've added beans), I had 4 delicious meals out of it.

Peter - Nov 29, 2019

Slightly too hot for my liking

Hazel - Nov 29, 2019

Unpleasant first flavour for us, or our flavours at all and then followed by lots of heat which we didn’t mind. Didn’t make it as far as the plate, put it in the bin and made the jalfreizi!

Andrew - Nov 20, 2019

Great taste. Worked well with Quorn pieces.

Sam - Nov 18, 2019

Lots of flavor just not flavours i enjoyed may have been because i made it with spicy rice. Coconut rice would likely have given it a sweeter taste
