Shrimp Korma from the Fresh from the Garden cookbook

Turmeric adds a gorgeous golden hue to dishes like shrimp korma
I recently received Fresh from the Garden a gorgeous cookbook by Sarah Raven, which contains tons of recipes I plan on making. I love and appreciate how the book is separated by season, making it easy to choose dishes that utilize the best bounty (and each season has over a hundred recipes, including drinks and desserts). Now that it’s spring, I plan on making: Iranian herb & feta salad, Moroccan fish tagine, fava beans in parsley sauce, pea and spinach timbale and lemon and passionfruit meringue pie.

But I started with shrimp korma, because I love the combination of coconut, curry powder, chili and turmeric.

Once you have all the required ingredients required, it’s so easy to make this dish. Which is why I love taking time on the weekends to plan meals for the week; whatever I don’t have in stock I run out and buy it so that cooking each dish isn’t a chore.

I served this with my daughter’s favorite rice: jasmine. Once you try this, you might not to need to order Indian take-out ever again.
