Ingredients for 4 persons

  • 400 g of frozen shrimps
  • 500 g of zucchini
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 400 ml of coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon of curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon of ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon of onion in powder
  • 1 teaspoon of dried garlic
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Salt
  • Some fresh cilantro leaves (coriander)


Step 1: vegetables preparation

Zucchini: Wash and remove the ends. Cut the zucchini into large cubes.

Tomatoes: Rinse with water. Remove the hard part at the peduncle, then cut into cubes.

Fresh cilantro: Rinse with water. Chop 4 leaves using scissors. Set aside the other leaves for the end of cooking.

Step 2:

In a large pan, mix the zucchini with the oil, curry powder, ginger, onion and garlic. Grill over high heat for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.

Step 3:

Lower the intensity of the fire.

Add the tomatoes, cilantro and frozen shrimps.

Put a lid on your pan. Cook over medium heat (5/10) for 20 minutes.

Step 4:

After 20 minutes of cooking, remove the lid from the pan; prawns are well cooked and zucchini are tender. Put the pan on low heat (3/10).

Add the coconut milk and mix.

Salt the dish to your liking. Adjust the curry seasoning if necessary.

Cook uncovered over low heat for 5 minutes to warm the sauce up.

Step 5:

Just before serving your dish, garnish with a few chopped fresh cilantro leaves.
