“The amount of curry paste in this recipe does not overpower the flavor of the prawns and the coconut milk gives the sauce a richness. I have put that this serves 4 but it depends on how large the prawns are and how much you love prawns. You can also serve this as an appetizer, with the rice and on a plate--then it would serve 8.”
