This is a very easy prawn and vegetable curry that makes a great side. I like to use it instead of rice to keep down the carb count.


Serves: 4 

  • 1 large yellow onion, roughly diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon belacan
  • 1 fresh red chilli
  • 50g small prawns, shelled
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 pinch salt, to taste
  • 1 small cabbage, diced
  • 180ml water
  • 120ml coconut milk

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Pound the onion, belacan and chilli with a mortar and pestle into a smooth spice paste. Or grind in a food processor.
  2. In a saucepan heat the oil and fry the spice paste until fragrant.
  3. Pour in the water followed by coconut milk. Season with salt to taste and bring to a gentle boil.
  4. Sprinkle the prawns with sugar and set aside.
  5. Add the prawns and cabbage then stir and cook until the cabbage is almost done.
  6. Remove from the heat and serve with rice and a meat dish.
