Mango Prawn Curry Recipe from Monsoon Indian Restaurant in Stillorgan
The Taste.ie is delighted to share this delightful Mango Prawn Curry recipe from Chef Alok’s kitchen at Monsoon Indian Restaurant in Stillorgan.
“Our Mango Prawn Curry is a long-established dish from Kerala” says Chef Alok, “it has the delicious flavour of ripe mangos and prawns cooked in creamy coconut Velouté – the mangoes are the highlight of this dish as they add such a distinctive and tangy flavour to it”.
“This recipe is packed full of nostalgia for many of our customers” adds Chef Raju, who grew up having this curry every summer. Another of Monsoon’s team members, Monish also says it reminds him and his customers of Indian summer holidays: “It’s no longer summer in Ireland” Monish says, “but mangoes are so readily available here, that this dish will add a little sunshine to your day, no matter what the time of year”.
“This prawn mango curry is one of the quintessential recipes from Kerala” Chef Raju adds, “most of our traditional curries are well known for their complexity, but this tasty curry is made in less than 20 minutes and all in one pan, so it’s the ideal recipe for you to try at home”.
