Shrimp and Pumpkin Curry
Indian inspired curry shrimp with pumpkin, tons of flavour!
green chili peppers
deseeded and roughly chopped
scallions, spring or green onions
salt and black pepper
Put shallot, cilantro leaves, coriander seeds, ginger and green chili pepper into a mortar and crush to make a curry paste.
Wash and trim the scallions (spring onions) and cut into rings.
Peel and chop the garlic.
Peel and deseed the pumpkin and cut into ½ inch (1cm cubes).
Heat the oil and sauté the scallions, ginger, garlic and pumpkin over a high heat for 4 to 5 minutes.
Stir in the coconut milk, curry paste and lemon juice, season with salt and pepper and simmer without a lid over a medium heat for about 5 minutes.
Check the seasoning, add the shrimp (prawns) and briefly return to a boil.
When the shrimp are cooked, serve in bowls with rice or bread.
