This super simple Kolkata Shrimp (prawn) Curry hails from Kolkata (formerly Calcutta) in India's western Bengali region, known there are Chingri malai curry. It's a quick, simple curry to put together - the whole thing ready in around 15 minutes.

Don't think for a second that it doesn't pack a complex curry fix though. Spicy, creamy and rich and layered with flavour.

The perfect 20-minute curry in a hurry

If you're short on time, but love the depth of taste of Indian food - seafood and especially shrimp are a great choice of ingredient. Shrimp take minutes to cook and bring a lot in flavour and texture to a dish. The combination of spices at play in this curry marry excellently with the soft, sweet shrimp.

Seafood curries are quick to prepare and cook - this curry is no exception - done in the same time it takes to cook rice. That's perfection! For more perfection, dispense of the rice and heat a pre bought roti or paratha. It's faster food than fast food!

There's everything to love about this quick and easy treat (perfect for a mid-week meal), so to get the job done quickly and properly, give my Kolkata shrimp curry a go. You might also consider another quick to cook curry South Indian Salmon Curry or my delicious Sri Lankan Thoramalu Fish Curry.
