The super flavorful curry paste forms the base of this easy Indian seafood curry. The idea behind this curry paste is very basic but it makes the curry taste out-of-this-world. And when combined with the unique flavors of fish and prawns, it creates an incredibly scrumptious curry.
To make the curry paste base of this seafood curry, grind together green chilies, tomato paste, garlic paste, ginger paste, cumin seeds, coriander powder, red chili powder, a handful of coriander (cilantro) leaves and grated coconut. I love the addition of coconut as it adds a level of richness to the curry sauce.
Once the curry paste is ready, you can start making this Indian seafood curry. First, fry onions in hot oil until they’re soft and translucent. Stir fry curry paste for a minute, and then fry tomatoes until they turn mushy.
Then add in the fish pieces followed by prawns. I actually made a simple version of this curry with fish and prawns. You can make this curry really special, especially when you’re entertaining, with the addition of mussels. I seasoned it with a pinch of salt, a handful of coriander (cilantro) leaves and juice of 1 lemon. I totally love the level of acidity that the lemon juice add to the curry.
This Indian seafood curry is all about the right balance of flavors. And it’s lip-smacking when served alongside steamed rice or parathas.
