Curried Seafood Rice is a recipe that I fell in love with. The rice is cooked in advance and often the day before and placed in the fridge. The addition of curry paste and the vegetables make this a meal in it own right. Many people call it a side dish but to me it is a main dish and I have actually had just this many a night. You can vary the strength of the dish and I have loaded my favourite homemade curry paste for you. I always use prawns or shrimp, it just depends on which one is cheaper at the time of cooking.
