Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I did a half recipe using 300 grams (12 prawns with shell on) and used a hot Madras curry and did omit the celery otherwise made as per recipe and served over cauliflower sauce but let the delicious curry sauce coat the cauliflower for personally I don't think it needed a curry rice especially as the Madras curry powder is quite hot but it all made for a very enjoyable low carb dinner but I scoffed the lot (yes 3 serves of curry and one serve of rice and all but a tablespoon of the veg. just couldn't help myself.)
