Prawn and Courgette Curry
Prawn and Courgette Curry
Created by urbanfoodie, Monday, 21 September 2009
This is a gorgeous and super quick curry recipe. So quick that it keeps all the freshness of its many green elements which beautifully compliment the seawater and sweetness of the prawns. Thanks Madhur for a firm family favourite.
