Pineapple and prawns coconut curry.

I was never a big fun of spicy food growing up, my parents have never been the most adventurous eaters and always stuck to Italian food, which is grate and I love it, but it's good to try new things.

So since I moved to London, 14 years ago, I have tried to educate my palate to a variety of different flavours, safe to say the training is going very well and I now love love love spicy food, especially a good curry.

To avoid the same mistakes, we have been giving Ali curries since she was 6 months. I make my own curry paste, so I can regulate how much chilly goes in, and we obviously don't make them too spicy, but I can honestly say, that girls loves her curry!

Today I really fancied prawns and as we roamed through the supermarket aisles we found these amazing tiger prawns, so we decided to make a delicious pineapple and tiger prawns coconut curry.


1 small pineapple, cut in small chunks

400g tiger prawns (raw and peeled)

400ml coconut milk

2 tbsp rapeseed oil

2 tsp turmeric

2 tsp soft brown sugar

1/2 tsp chilly powder

Curry paste

1 garlic clove

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp turmeric

1 tsp ginger

1 medium red chilly, deseed and deveined

1/2 coriander

1/2 cumin

A little oil to bind


- Add all the ingredients for the curry paste and blitz in a blender until you have a paste.

- Add the coconut milk and pineapple and leave to simmer for 5 minutes.
