With thanks to Stella Marpereira who created this delicious curry.
- 800g raw prawns (cleaned, with shells)
- 2 medium shallots, finely chopped
- 2 medium tomatoes (de-seeded and diced finely)
- 2 spoons coconut oil
- 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
- 3 peppercorns
- 400ml coconut milk
- 200g macadamia nuts
- Coriander to garnish
Blend macadamia and coconut milk in a high-speed blender until smooth. Set aside.
In a large pot, gently heat coconut oil. Soften onions on low heat until translucent!
Add the turmeric & peppercorns, still on low heat. Add tomatoes, stir occasionally, until a thick rich paste forms (this might take a while, until its jammy). Toss in prawn heads (if using, see ingredients) and cook on medium heat for 8 minutes or so.
Add coconut and macadamia milk, simmer gently for approximately 15 minutes (loosen with water if the sauce is too thick).
Add prawns, season, stir and cook on medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes.
Serve with rice or nsima.
