Easy Indian Prawn Curry Recipe

Sometimes, you just want a recipe which requires the minimum time but offers the maximum taste. Well, we’ve got the perfect recipe for those kinda days!

This Indian inspired easy prawn curry recipe can be prepped and cooked in just 15 minutes but has the most amazing, aromatic flavours and moreish taste – it’s simple, fast and delicious.

And, for those who eat them, prawns can be a great addition to a healthy and balanced diet. They’re a fantastic source of omega-3 fatty acids (hello, glowing skin and healthy hair), healthy fats and lean protein but are still relatively low in calories if you stick to a modest portion.

If you’re vegan or vegetarian, we’d recommend swapping up the prawns in this recipe for some chickpeas or tofu – it’ll still be super healthy and taste equally amazing!
