Potato and Prawn Curry

I didn't follow the original recipe and grind the spice paste, I just use whatever spice paste thats available in the fridge, I add about 1 1/2 tablespoon of my own spice paste. I think just buy any brand of sambal or chilli paste from supermarket can also do this dish. Attach recipe from Yum Yum magazine, I didn't do the spice paste, so I skip the frying paste part for my dish...

2cm tumeric
2 cm ginger
5 red chillies
5 pips garlic, removed skin

2 tbsp oil
2 potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
1onion, remove skin
2 green chillies, seeded and cut into pieces
2 red chillies, seeded and cut into pieces
1 tomato, cut into chunks
500g medium prawn meat

½ tsp salt
½ tbsp sugar
1tbsp light soya sauce
500ml water

1. Heat up oil and sauté spices until fragrant. Add potatoes, seasoning and bring to boil. Lower

the heat and simmer for 25min.

2. Add onion, green and red chilli and cook for another 5 min.

3. Lastly add in the prawn and tomato and continue to cook for 3min. Dish up and serve.
