Healthy Prawn & Okra Curry

I love this easy curry recipe for many reasons. It can be made in approximately 20 minutes, it tastes amazing and it is super healthy. ⠀ Serves 4⠀ INGREDIENTS ⠀ 360g raw tiger prawns⠀⠀ 175g Okra cut in half lengthways. ⠀ 200g fresh tomatoes roughly chopped⠀⠀ 4 large shallots or 2 onion finely chopped⠀⠀ 4 garlic cloves finely chopped⠀⠀ Thumb piece ginger finely chopped⠀⠀ 1 red chilli finely chopped⠀⠀ Bunch coriander stalks chopped, leaves set aside⠀⠀ 1/2 lime⠀ SPICES ⠀ 2 tsp ground cumin⠀⠀ 2 tsp ground coriander⠀⠀ 3 cardamom pods⠀⠀ 1 tsp medium curry powder⠀ ⠀⠀ METHOD ⠀ Soften the shallot or onion in oil for 5 minutes before adding the coriander stalks, garlic, ginger and chilli. Season generously.⠀ Add all of the spices followed by the okra. Stir for a minute or two before adding the tomatoes and simmer for 5 minutes. When the okra has softened add the prawns and put a lid on for 2-3 minutes or until the prawns are pink. Sprinkle with coriander leaves and a squeeze of lime. Serve with Indian bread or rice.⠀
