Prawn Curry with Wholewheat Cous Cous

♬ 'Ceremonials' By Florence and The Machine

As we approach 2012 my obsession with Florence's second album is still strong, she is definitely a lady I would love to meet.

Today has made me aware of how much I have learnt and progressed this year. This food blog and my beginners guide to social media and marketing has developed so quickly! What's great is that there is still loads more to learn and do.
Of course there have been highlights and sad times but my passion for what I am doing is just as strong.

Loads more highlights of the blog and food after Christmas.


Insane to think this prawn curry took 20 minutes to prepare.

No lie, no bad joke, no fuss.

Delicious, cheap, healthy and tasty.

Recipe to serve 2


1 tbsp vegetable oil
Half a red chili with seeds.
8 cumin seeds
Raw King Prawns (200g)
 200g chopped tomatoes (roughly half a can)
1 garlic clove
1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp turmeric
1tsp chilli powder
1 tbsp tomato puree
1 tsp brown sugar
Fresh coriander
300g wholewheat cous cous


: Heat vegetable oil in a medium pot, add the cumin seeds and garlic.
: Next the prawns can go in with the dried spices. Stir to make sure all prawns are covered.
: After 5 minutes tip in the chopped tomatoes, chili and simmer for 10 minutes.
: Prawns should be done, now time for the cous cous.
: Put the cous cous in a small pot, no need to warm up on the hob.
Boil your kettle and pour enough boiling water to cover the top of the cous cous. Leave for 5 minutes until water has been absorbed and cous cous is fluffy when you stir it with a fork.

 : Serve with fresh coriander or miss this out if you are not a fan.


Next Time:
Scallops instead of prawns.

Not a fan of fish?
