Prawns in Thai Red Curry Recipe

Prawns have become my latest favourites. They're easy to cook and yummy to eat. How can you stop yourself from falling in love with them?

My latest attempt in the kitchen was making Prawns in Thai Red Curry. The curry is fragrant with lemongrass and kaffir lime and heat of chillies, garlic and galangal soothed by coconut milk. Prawns pair very well with it.

Have this flavourful curry with steamed rice (use jasmine rice if you can find it!) and have yourself a bowlful of comfort!

4 tbsps Thai red curry paste (recipe here)
2 cups coconut milk
6-7 Thai basil leaves (optional)
Salt to taste


In a pan, heat the oil.

Add in the prawns and Thai basil leaves. Fry for about 30 seconds.

Next, add the thai curry paste and coat the prawns well with it.

Add in the coconut milk and salt and bring to a boil.

Lower the flame and simmer for a minute till prawns are done. Do not  boil the coconut milk too much or it will go bad in the curry.
