    1. 1
      Mix together all of the marinade ingredients to create a smooth paste.
    2. 2
      Heat the oil in a deep frying pan and add the mustard seeds. When they start to pop, add the onion and garlic.
    3. 3
      Cook for 5 minutes or until golden brown.
    4. 4
      Stir in the spice paste.
    5. 5
      Fry over a gentle heat for 4-5 minutes, until the spices are aromatic.
    6. 6
      Stir in the coconut milk and prawns. Simmer for 5-6 minutes, until the prawns are cooked through and the sauce has thickened. Season to taste.
    7. 7
      In the meantime, wash the rice in several changes of cold water, to get rid of any excess starch.
    8. 8
      Place the rice in a saucepan with the cardamom, cloves, cinnamon stick and salt. Pour in the water.
    9. 9
      Bring to the boil, cover with a tight fitting lid and cook for 10 minutes. Do not remove the lid during the cooking time. Leave the rice to stand for 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork.
    10. 10
      Serve the prawn curry and rice together, with naan bread if desired.

      Wow! Wow! Wow!
      This is truly wonderful!! Served it to my family and there was not a drip left on their plates!
      I made the sauce earlier the day. 10 mins before serving I brought it to a boil and added the shrimp.
      This one is a HUGE winner!!!
