What an amazing collection of flavours - and "rocket fuel" hot! So quick to make, too. One thing that bothered me, though, was the excessive amount of the "green seasoning" paste. The quantities described above makes twice the amount required, which is completely bonkers unless you're planning on making the same again tomorrow. I wound up throwing away half of my mixture, which peeved me no end as regards the waste of ingredients and money. So be warned - halve the ingredients for the "spice paste", or be prepared to either make it again or throw lots away!
i use jamaican curry the result was very nice but have to say is was hot!and the flat bread was deliciuse.
delicious! we used indian hot curry powder and the result was quite indian tasting and very very hot but very tasty indeed
This recipe is fantastic and so easy to make. I found that the instructions for the paste made much more than was required for the recipe, unless of course I did something wrong, but it keeps well in the fridge and meant I had to cook this again the following week. Sure it would freeze.
I think this is Gary's take on caribbean food, he's not trying to replicate any particular recipe, that said it tastes fantastic, easy to adapt to make it hotter & very quick to cook once the spice mix is made! Tip: Make double of the spice paste & freeze some, the spices are more concentrated when they come out of the freezer :-)
I am a Bajan and have sailed, several times, around the Caribbean. I watched Gary Rhodes programs and I don't know where he got the people or recipes from, but they are not what you would get there. For a start a Caribbean roti is not served separate to the curry, it is WRAPPED around the curry and served as fast food throughout the West Indies. His seasoning has not resemblance to any I have ever seen or heard of (I make my own to an old Barbadian recipe).
this is the closest attempt I have ever seen of this very notorious roti recipe - very impressed.
we just tried this curry with the paratha roti and i have to say this is the most enjoyable prawn curry I have ever had. Highly recommended!!!!
Great recipe. Definitely a keeper in my household!
One of the tastiest curries i'v ever eaten. juicy prawns and a tasty sauce. sublime
I have tried this recipe . And it was simply mouth-watering. I will definitely serve this next time to my Italian friends
