This sizzling bowl of Allepey Prawn Curry is the reason we probably fall asleep at work too often. A mountain of rice and a ladleful of this curry has us jumping with joy and then subsequently needing a siesta. This prawn curry recipe is just the thing for when you plan to spend your day indoors. Which side are you on?
