    Bokenpop aka Madeleine's Note:

    A delicious spice blend that's just hot enough to warm you up on a chilly winter's night. The beauty of this dish is that the curry sauce can be made ahead and shrimp added just before serving which makes it perfect for entertaining.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat butter and oil in a large pot and fry onions, garlic and ginger for 5 minutes.
    2. 2
      Reduce heat and add curry powder, bay leaves, star anise, cardamom pod, cinnamon stick and cumin seeds cooking this for 5 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add tomato pulp, vinegar, sugar and chicken stock stirring well.
    4. 4
      Bring to the boil, reduce heat and leave to simmer for 45 minutes - the curry sauce could cook for hours at this stage which would blend the spices very well.
    5. 5
      Add coconut milk and adjust seasoning to taste.
    6. 6
      Raise heat, add shrimp and cook for 10 minutes til all shrimp have turned pink.

      This was awesome! I didn't have 3.5 pounds of shrimp so I used some broccoli and zucchini in it also. I am definitely making this again, probably this week.

      This was wonderful! I had to leave out the anise & cardamom pod as they were nowhere to be found at my local grocery. I was surprised at how mild it was, but I am a curry fanatic so perhaps I'm immune? The mildness DID NOT detract at all from the overall taste and the ginger gave it a perfect extra POP!

      I have made this prawn curry twice now and I wanted to say thank you for sharing such an "incredible" dish!! 5 thumbs up !! I have since used this base recipe in making lamb curry ... just fry up the lamb pieces first and follow the recipe to a tee. A sure 5 star winner recipe that will be shared on New Years Eve
