This wasn't what I had in mind for the shrimp curry I was craving, but it turned out nicely. I substituted the milk for coconut milk to give it more of a Thai flavor. The curry flavor wasn't as strong as I would prefer. But the meal was delicious and my three year old even liked it!
Great recipe! I normally cook a recipe exactly as listed the first time, but did make a few changes. I had no celery, so I left it out. I generally add a shake of salt to my rice while cooking.
Additionally, I tasted while cooking the sauce and had to make a few slight changes. I doubled the curry powder, added a good shake of red pepper and an additional dash of salt. I grated too much cheese, so I added it to the sauce (about an additional 1/2 cup). I also added some salt and curry powder to the shrimp while cooking it (but did not put the liquid from the shrimp pan into the casserole). Lastly, next time I will add the rice, shrimp and sauce in layers. I almost stirred the sauce (as opposed to inserting with the tines of the fork) and it still did not get to the bottom of the rice. This would also be good with some steamed brocolli or sweet peas added prior to baking.
Added garlic and mushrooms, ditched the celery. Flippin awesome stuff. Thanks for posting it.
This was excellent! I made some modifications, partially based on the other reviews, and partly to make it healthier: I used brown rice, doubled the curry, and I added some diced carrot to the celery and onion for sweetness and I left out the sugar. I also added in some ginger and garlic after step one. It was very flavourful!
My four year old loved it! I didn't have any celery or onion, so I just put the milk in a saucepan, added the curry powder, flour, half the salt, 1/2 tsp celery salt and 1/2 tsp onion powder, and brought it to a boil, stirring constantly with a wisk. I also added a bit extra cheese both in the sauce and on top, probably 1/2 cup extra in total. I prepared the rest as described, though I cut my shrimp into smaller pieces. Makes a good family meal.
We absolutely loved this!! (...and I am not usually a big fan of curry - my husband is!)
Used brown rice, a whole onion finely chopped, and 8oz sliced mushrooms instead of the celery. Did not use any sugar. At the end, I mixed rice, sauce, and shrimp all together before putting in the baking dish. The flavor was quite mild, so next time I will do as other reviewers and double the curry. All in all it was tasty!
This dish was scrumptious, even to my curry-loathing husband. I did make a few adjustments to suit our tastes; I added 3 grated garlic cloves, a little slice of grated ginger, and dash of red pepper flakes, with the onions and celery. I used a can of coconut milk and 3/4 can milk, added an extra 1/2 cup of cheese to the sauce, and doubled the curry powder & salt. Also added some frozen peas right before layering (rice, shrimp, sauce, rice, shrimp, sauce, cheese) Btw. My (tiny) shrimp weren't cooked, so baked them in the oven for approx. 5 minutes with some salt and lemon juice, before adding. Thanks for this great dish MsKillian
