Tandoori King Prawn Curry

Okay so I am well aware that curry is a bit of a tough one to eat when it’s so so hot outside during these lovely summer months but you’re going to want to try this Tandoori King Prawn Curry. The tandoori spice mix that I use isn’t exactly the same as the standard recipe’s you can find online because I like adding that little extra punch and you’ll find that in fennel seed, a really lovely fragrant seed that packs a punch.

The key to a delicious Tandoori King Prawn is marinating it for at least an hour before you make it, even better if you can leave your prawns marinating overnight. Marinating your prawns (which, by the way, should absolutely been whole uncooked prawns), will give you a beautiful texture and lovely aromatic flavour.
