Ingredients

3 garlic cloves

1 x 4cm piece ginger, peeled, roughly chopped

1 large mild green chilli, roughly chopped

1 tbsp vegetable oil

2 tbsp curry powder

1 tbsp tomato paste

    Heat the oil in a wok or saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic paste and cook, stirring, for half a minute. Then add the curry powder and tomato paste and stir for another half a minute.

The perfect shrimp curry

April 18, 2024

This curry is so easy and quick to make. The biggest surprise was that it doesn’t have a lot of ingredients. I served it with jasmine rice and all I can say is yummy. I have in the past spent hours making curry ….not today!!
