Thai red prawn curry

At home the only good takeaway restaurant closed a little while ago and sadly their Thai curry was the best i ever tasted .  At the time i spoke with the chef and owner who came from Thailand and she was going to teach me some recipes but unfortunately  business wasn’t great and she had to close down.  So  with a little research and tweaks i managed to cook a curry that nearly taste as good as the original one and i wanted to share the recipe with you and hopefully you will like it .
