Creamy Octopus Curry

Blogging about something different today! Putting my obsession with a certain woman aside, here I share my recipe for a creamy Seychelles octopus curry.  In Seychelles we all have different ways of cooking Octopus curry and this is my mum’s recipe which I have shared with many of my friends in UK.  I am happy to say that my octopus curry is always a hit!

What you need…

1 large Octopus – cleaned and ink sack removed

2 cups of fresh Coconut Milk or 1 can coconut milk

1 spring fresh curry leaves

2 large fresh or dry cinnamon Leaves

Fresh Thyme

1 tbsp Mild Creole Curry Powder

2 tsp Saffron Powder

2 tsp Chili powder

1 1/2 tsp turmeric powder

1 inch fresh ginger

Salt & Black pepper to taste

Ready to cook!

Clean the Octopus and hound with a rolling-pin to tenderise. Roughly chop into chunks in the desired size.
