Helen's Prawn tomato and Fenugreek curry

Helen’s Prawn Tomato and Methi Curry
This recipe was given to us by ‘Helen’ an Indian ‘maid’ in the science department at the Gulf English School in Kuwait in 1990. We remember her fondly.
• 1 large potato
• 3 large tomatoes skinned chopped and reduced (or 1 tin of toms)
• 1 large onion finely chopped
• 250g prawns (peeled)
• 5 Tbs of cooking oil
• 4 teeth of garlic
• ½ tsp cumin seeds
• 1 tsp black mustard seeds
• 2 tsp Methi leaves(Fenugreek leaves, usually dried brought from UK)
• *2 tsps cumin and coriander powder (C and C)
• 1 tsp Chilli powder

Add mustard seeds and cumin seeds to hot oil.
Fry onions and garlic in oil until soft add C and C fry for another minute.
Add tomato and potato cook until potatoes are soft.
Add prawns and Methi
Add salt to taste
Cook for about 4 mins until prawns are cooked serve with rice or Naan bread

*I grind them together and store as ‘C and C’. If adding separately use 1 tsp of each.

Afiyet olsun, it really is superb, but then again so were the giant prawns in Kuwait. We buy them frozen online here and they are OK, about 40 prawns to a kilo. Turkish spice shops will see fenugreek seeds (Çemen tohumu) but you will not find the leaves here, for that you need to visit a Pakistani or Indian store in the UK.

Re: Helen's Prawn tomato and Fenugreek curry

Sounds lovely, I will give this a try. One question though - what is a tooth of garlic? Is this the same as one clove of garlic?

Yes, one clove, sorry about that. I am not sure why I use the word tooth, but we do in our house. I think it is a direct translation from Turkish.
