Gambas curry


Tonight I was wondering what I could cook for dinner without having to go shopping. I had red peppers, mushrooms, coconut milk, tomatoes, basmati rice. So I decided to do a coconut curry sauce but of course I then really wanted gambas so I had to go to the supermarket at the end 🙂

What do you need? (for 2 serving)

  • coconut milk (200ml)
  • basmati rice
  • 12 gambas
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 onion
  • 1/2 red pepper
  • 4 flat green beens (helda beens)
  • 3 white mushrooms
  • 1 tomato
  • 5cl of white wine
  • olive oil
  • Salt, black pepper, coriander, grass lemon


First peel the gambas and keep them aside – if you have a green lemon, you can put a bit of lemon and reserve them aside. Stir in a work the red peppers, flat green beans and onion. I prefer to cut the pepper and beans in big chunk but it’s up to you. After a few minutes, add the mushrooms cut in pieces and the garlic. Stir and add the tomato.

Add the salt, black pepper and lemon grass and spread the white wine. Cook for 10mn or a bit less if you like the vegetables to be crunchy.

Meanwhile start cooking your basmati rice.

Add the gambas into your wok, fry for a few minutes, add the coriander and the coconut milk. Stir at very low fire for a few minutes.

You can now serve in bowls the curry and rice separately.


ps. I don’t like to take pictures of my dishes in the evening as the light is not as nice as the natural day light but didn’t really have a choice as it’s dark so eaaaarlyyyy!
