Thai style Prawn Red Curry

Tried this ready to cook Red Curry paste with prawns. Not bad, I must say!! 



  • Prawns – 300 gms
  • Thai Red Curry Paste – 1 pack
  • Coconut Milk – 400 ml
  • Brown Sugar – 1 tbsp
  • Thai Seasoning – 1 tsp
  • Fish Sauce – 1 tsp
  • Dry Basil leaves – 1 tsp
  • Brown Sugar – 1 tbsp
  • Salt – As required

Lightly saute the prawns with a pinch of salt and keep aside.


Heat 2 tbsp oil in the pan. Add the curry paste and stir for 1 minutes over low heat.


Add the brown sugar and fish sauce and mix well. Add a cup of hot water and coconut milk and let it boil.


Add the sauteed prawns and stir gently. Cook till prawns are done.


Add dried basil, thai seasoning, kaffir lime juice and leaves. I have added some fresh green chillies to get the extra zing.


When prawns are cooked and gravy thickens, check the seasoning. Keep covered after removing from heat to get the flavors of kaffir lime infused into the gravy. Serve with plain rice or thai rice noodles.
