Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Sri Lankan Crab & Prawn Curry

Add the basmati rice and 300ml [600ml] cold water to a pot with a lid and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to very low and cook, covered, for 10-12 min or until all the water has been absorbed and the rice is cooked

Once cooked, remove from the heat and keep covered until serving

2 Sri Lankan Crab & Prawn Curry

While the rice is cooking, peel and finely slice the brown onion[s]

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium heat

Once hot, add the sliced onion with a pinch of salt and cook for 5-6 min or until beginning to soften

3 Sri Lankan Crab & Prawn Curry

While the onion softens, boil a kettle

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Peel (scrape the skin off with a teaspoon) and finely chop (or grate) the ginger

Cut the red chilli[es] in half lengthways, deseed (scrape the seeds out with a teaspoon) and chop finely

4 Sri Lankan Crab & Prawn Curry

Once the onion has softened, add the curry powder, ground turmeric, chopped garlic and ginger

Set some of the chopped chilli aside for garnish, then add the remaining chopped chilli to the pan (can't handle the heat? Go easy!)

Cook for 2 min or until fragrant

5 Sri Lankan Crab & Prawn Curry

Separate the white crab meat (the top layer) from the brown crab meat (the bottom layer) with a fork, as you'll use them at different parts of the cooking process

Remove the coconut cream from the sachet[s] and chop it roughly

Dissolve the chopped coconut cream and 1/2 [1] Knorr vegetable stock cube in 300ml [500ml] boiled water – this is your stock

6 Sri Lankan Crab & Prawn Curry

Add the stock to the pan with the brown crab meat and give everything a good mix up

Add the juice of 1/2 [1] lime with 1/2 tsp [1 tsp] sugar and bring to the boil over a high heat

Add the prawns and cook for 3-4 min or until cooked through

7 Sri Lankan Crab & Prawn Curry

While the prawns are cooking, cut the remaining lime into wedges

Pick the coriander leaves from their stalks and set aside

Chop the coriander stalks finely

Once the prawns are cooked, stir the coriander stalks through the sauce – this is your Sri Lankan crab & prawn curry
