Prawn and Egg Curry with Hash Brown Egg Nests

Posted 2016-05-05 by finyfollow

I love prawns, I love eggs even more, and I like curries - so I mixed the three together and as well as having potatoes with it, I made some hash browns filled with egg, bacon and cheese.

It was a delicious meal!

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 45 minutes
Makes: 2 - 3 servings

For the egg and prawn curry
2 tbsp oil
1 shallot, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
Bit of fresh ginger
½ tbsp coriander seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
½ tsp chili powder or flakes
½ tbsp tomato paste
¾ cup water
3 hard boiled eggs, halved
125 g shelled raw prawns (I bought them shelled)
20 g creamed coconut
Boiled potatoes (optional)

For the hash brown nests
250g frozen hash browns, thawed
½ tbsp olive oil
¾ cup cheese, grated
4 small eggs
3 rashers short cut bacon
Extra tbsp cheese, grated
½ tbsp parsley, chopped finely
1 avocado (optional)

For the egg and prawn curry
  • Heat the oil in a wok or frypan, and add the shallots.

  • Cook until they are starting to brown, and add the ginger and garlic. Cook for about a minute.

  • Add the other spices and cook on low for about 2 minutes, stirring sometimes. You may have to add a bit of water if it dries out too much. Add the tomato paste.

  • Add the water with a bit of salt if needed.

  • Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

  • Add the hard boiled eggs, mix gently, cover and cook for about 10 - 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  • Add the prawns and when the curry starts to simmer, stir in the creamed coconut. Do not overcook or the prawns will get tough.

  • Bring it to the boil once again, and then serve with boiled potatoes underneath (optional).

  • For the hash browns
  • Break up the hash browns and mix with salt, pepper, oil and ¾ cup grated cheese.

  • Grease a muffin pan and put the mixture in, pressing down with your fingers to pack them tightly. Shape into nests that will be filled.

  • Bake at 190° f/forced, and till the edges have gone brown - about 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile chop up the bacon into small pieces and cook till it is brown.

  • Put a small egg into each "nest" - I did not want to eat so many eggs, so I put the yellow in some, and the white in others. Add pepper and salt if desired.

  • Add the small pieces of cooked bacon, another tbsp grated cheese, and a bit of chopped parsley.

  • Bake at 160° f/forced until the egg whites are set which is usually about 10 - 12 minutes.

  • Let them cool slightly before sliding a knife or other object down the sides to loosen them.

  • Serve with the curry and avocado slices.

  • They would also be great for breakfast, brunch or just a snack, and are something different if you have visitors.
