Earlier this month I signed up for one of Sur La Tables’ wonderful cooking classes and used it to test out my Indian cooking skills. If you’re like me, you’ve tried to make Indian dishes in the past and ended up wondering if you’d ever perfect them enough to be worth of any Indian restaurants’ (or something even close!). Well, I can finally say that this class did the trick!

Enter: Paleo Coconut Curry Shrimp

Rich, buttery, spicy coconut curry sauce, resembling that of a traditional butter chicken sauce – simply delightful! Freshly toasted cumin and coriander seeds with their intoxicatingly delicious fragrant wafting from the pan. Vibrantly colorful veggies swimming among that sauce and toasted spices just perfects the dish further. It’s an incredible recipe and meal!

I’m pretty sure the secret to amazing Indian food is FRESHLY toasted and ground spices (you just cannot replicate this incredible flavor!) and ghee/coconut oil (i.e. FAT). Just. So. Good!

I must say, Sur La Table is a crazy-wonderful store. I mean, there is SO much to play with! And then, throw in a cooking class where you can literally play with anything they offer in the store AND eat the fruits of your labor… just wonderful. This was the third cooking class I have taken from Sur La Table because 1) they’re fun, 2) you learn new and fun recipes and culinary techniques, and 3) there’s such a huge variety of classes offered and it’s always a great time.

This particular class focused on Easy-to-Make Indian dishes and the meal line up included:

  • Potato Stuffed Flatbread (Aloo Paratha)
  • Shrimp Coconut Curry
  • Roasted Eggplant with Coriander and Ginger
  • Spicy Red Lentils (Dal)
  • Cardamom-Scented Basmati Rice

YUM!

Enough with the chit-chat, let’s get to the recipe that you will make over and over and over again! The ingredient list is long, yes, but the dish itself is SUPER easy. Don’t let the length of the recipe stop you from making this- it’s a dish that will definitely impress time and time again.
