    1. 1
      In a large saucepan, heat the oil then add the chopped onions, ginger, garlic and cardamom and fry gently for about 10 minutes till softened and light-golden brown.
    2. 2
      Then add in the spices and stir and cook for another 10 minutes (you may pour in a little water if you find the spices sticking to the bottom of the pan).
    3. 3
      Add in the prawns and stir them so they are evenly coated with the spice mixture then add in the chopped tomatoes and season with salt and bring it to a simmering point.
    4. 4
      Then reduce heat to medium-low and cook for about 20-25 minutes uncovered, stirring occasionally, by which time most of the liquid will have evaporated and the tomatoes will have reduced to a thick sauce.
    5. 5
      Remove from heat and garnish with chopped coriander and serve straight away.

      A nicely flavorful curry! I added just a bit of cayenne at the end. I think I may try this with chicken sometimes as well. Thanks for posting!

      Very delicious curry, I increased the servings to use 450 grams of prawns/shrimp and followed the recipe as written. The flavours were wonderful and the aroma was mouth-watering. Thank you Aaliyah's mum
