Traditionally the prawns of this dish are served with a puri (an unleavened deep fried Indian bread), but to keep the syns low in this, I have omitted the bread side of things, as the prawns are equally as delicious on their own.
Whenever I got to an Indian restaurant (which is not so often nowadays as I tend to make my own Indian food favourites), one of the dishes I always order is Prawn Puri.
It's traditionally a starter dish, fragrant and delicious prawns in a tomato based curry sauce served with a puri (or poori) a delicious Indian bread, that is perfect for scooping up and eating the prawn part of the dish.
Such a flavour explosion on your palate especially drizzled with a little mint yoghurt.
It just had to be a dish I recreated so that I could enjoy it on plan at home. I skip the bread part in this because the prawn part of this popular dish is amazing just as it is.
Serve with some plain rice, sweetcorn pilau rice, zucchini pilau rice or even this Roasted Cauliflower Rice, I don't even miss the bread.
If you do want some bread alongside this Prawn Puri dish, you could use a Healthy Extra B wrap or pitta bread. Another option is this Homemade Sweet Potato Flatbread which is simply delicious.

HOW CAN I ADD A ⅓ SPEED FOODS TO THIS PRAWN PURI?
Serving this prawn puri with roasted cauliflower rice instead of regular rice will easily up your speed foods, but you could also pair it with one of the Indian Fakeaway vegetable-based sides like the Bombay Butternut Squash.
I love cauliflower rice, but only when it's cooked a particular way and roasting is my favourite, as it gives it a much nicer flavour. You can even buy little bags of chopped cauliflower rice now too, which will save you some time (and mess), as you can just add it straight to the tray. Got to love handy time savers.
