This is a wonderful dish of sweet succulent prawns, immersed in a aromatic and refreshing assam curry gravy. The prawns simmered with fragrant curry spices and home made rempah, while balanced with the tartness of the tamarind/assam.
We used Borges Grapeseed oil, which is a good source of Vitamin E and A, for this recipe has a neutral taste that would not overpower the fragrance of the spices nor the sweetness of the prawns. Also, the oil has a higher smoking point that enables us to stir-fry the rempah without worrying about it getting burnt easily.
If you’re into enjoying prawn heads, the gravy is a perfect match to the intense flavour. As the dish is not too spicy, it’s a nice one for the whole family to enjoy!
