1
Begin by preparing the prawns. Keeping the heads on, peel and devein the prawns, reserving the shells. Place the peeled prawns in the fridge for later, then place the reserved shells in a saucepan with a tablespoon of the oil and gently toast until coloured. Pour over 600ml of water, bring to the boil and cook for 30 minutes to create a stock. Strain the stock through a fine sieve – you will need 400ml for this recipe
2
Heat the remaining grapeseed oil in a large pan and add the spring onions, red onion and shallots. Cook for 4 minutes until the onions are soft and translucent
3
Turn down the heat, then add the butter and cook until lightly browned. Add the chillies, ginger and curry powder and cook, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes until fragrant
  • 3 tbsp of butter
  • 3 red chillies, small, finely chopped
  • 1 knob of ginger, 3cm in length, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp madras curry powder
4
Add the peanuts and tomatoes, fry for a few minutes then add the okra. Increase the heat and cook for 3–4 minutes, then add 400ml of the prawn stock and a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil, reduce to a simmer and cook the sauce, stirring occasionally, until thickened
5
Add the prawns to the pan, increase the heat and stir them through the sauce for 2–3 minutes, making sure the heads don’t break off the bodies
6
To serve, pour the prawns and the sauce onto a serving platter, arranging the okra around the rim. Garnish with the coriander, sliced chillies and peanuts and serve immediately with the cooked coconut rice
