SERVES: 4 | PREPARATION: 10 MINUTES | COOKING: 25 MINUTES
2 heads broccoli, stems and florets chopped
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 onion, finely diced
1 zucchini, thinly sliced
1 long red chilli, thinly sliced
3 cloves garlic, sliced
2 cm piece of ginger, finely grated
2 teaspoons curry powder
3 teaspoons brown mustard seeds
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
400 g tinned diced tomatoes
600 g cooked prawns, peeled and deveined, tails intact (see notes, and also note on page 174 regarding sodium)
1 cup (260 g) natural yoghurt
Juice of 1 lemon
450 g cauliflower rice, heated according to the packet instructions (see notes)
2 tablespoons chopped roasted unsalted cashews
½ cup coriander leaves
- Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil and cook the broccoli for 5 minutes until tender. Drain and set aside.
- Heat the olive oil in a large, deep frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and zucchini and cook, stirring occasionally, for 6–7 minutes until very so ened. Add the chilli, garlic, ginger, curry powder, mustard seeds, turmeric and ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper and cook, stirring, for a further 1–2 minutes until fragrant.
- Add the diced tomatoes, 2 tablespoons water and the prawns, tossing everything together. (There won’t be a lot of sauce here, so place a lid on the frying pan to help the prawns steam to cook through.) Cook, covered, for 2–3 minutes until the prawns are cooked through, then stir the yoghurt and lemon juice through. Divide the cauliflower rice four between bowls, spoon the prawn curry over and add the cooked broccoli. Garnish with the cashews and coriander leaves and serve.
Notes: You can use frozen raw prawns if you prefer. But don’t add the water to the frying pan as the frozen prawns will release quite a bit of moisture. You may need to simmer the sauce for an extra 2 minutes to reduce any excess liquid in your curry before serving. You can find cauliflower rice in the fresh produce section at your local supermarket. If unavailable, use the frozen variety instead.
