Shrimp Curry With Pineapples



Another mouthwatering dish from my mom, the shrimp curry with pineapple slices.

This curry is the sourish version. No coconut milk or cream is added. I just love this type of curry. Mom grounds the spices on her own. Grounded shallots and chilies, ginger flower, belacan, Kaffir lime leaves and tamarind juice play their very important role to the curry gravy.

The prawns are shelled halfway, left its tails. In this way, the cholesterol is reduced. Not only that, the prawns get a chance to absorb all the essence from the gravy. Thirdly, the prawns are more convenient for consuming. :) With the pineapple slices added, it give the curry an "Umphh".

Selba, hmm...sourish curry, but the smell is not as strong as Tom Yam.

foodbin, yes agree!

Simple Girl, yalor, less fat and healthier.

Dora, not really very sour. You can control the sourish level with the concentration of tamarind juice.

Patty, you miss grandma's home cooked ler?
