Default Madras Penne

Ok - you might not be able make this one in your RV but it is too good not to post here

I had Madras Penne from Moxies Restaurant and loved it. Their description of it is:
Your choice of chicken or prawns with mango chutney, red peppers, fresh garlic, ginger, red onions, coconut and sliced apples in a cream sauce with a light touch of curry.


I wanted to make this at home so here's what I came up with:

Madras Penne
5 or 6 servings

900 gram box of penne pasta
2 cans premium coconut milk
Madras curry powder (make a curry paste with a little coconut milk and curry powder)
Mango chutney
Little bit of ginger powder
Butter
Olive oil
Granny smith apple
Red onion
Red pepper
Fresh garlic
Can of crushed pineapple
Bag of uncooked prawns
Shredded coconut (I used sweetened)
Panini bread

I started by warming the coconut milk and adding some of the curry paste to it. You can keep adding curry paste until you like how it tastes. Then I added the can of crushed pineapple including the juice. That diluted the curry taste a little so I added more curry paste. I also added a little bit of ginger powder to the curry paste, just a little.

Slice the red onion and red pepper and mince the garlic and sauté all of that in a frying pan with butter/olive oil. Add the sautéed mix to the coconut curry sauce and bring the sauce to simmer. I added a bit of the shredded coconut to the sauce.

Add the peeled prawns and sliced apple to the curry sauce when you start boiling the pasta. I used the whole box of pasta.

Slice the Panini bread into wedges or easily handled rectangles and Brush it with a warmed olive oil/butter mixture and sprinkle a little garlic powder on it. Grill the bread in your oven.

Warm up a few spoonfuls of mango chutney in the microwave.

When the pasta is cooked drain it and add the sauce and mix it all together so that the pasta is well coated in sauce. Serve it in a plate, sprinkle some shredded coconut on top and drip some of the warmed mango chutney on top also. Add a dollop of mango chutney in the middle. Add 3 or 4 pieces of the grilled Panini bread and enjoy.

My wife thinks it tastes pretty close what we've had at Moxies and so do I

This recipe sounds delicious! Looking forward to giving it a try.....

P.S.

Just a footnote on an great ready made curry paste, available in numerous flavors, from the the PATAK company, a British firm located in Bombay.
In addition to curry pastes, they also offer pickles and chutneys of equal quality.

I've used their pastes with their deep and complex flavors for years, and have always had good results; the jar of paste, when kept cool, will last for many weeks. A tablespoon added to most any stock will provide authentic flavor, and for the traveler, is only one item to pack.

If anyone needs curry and can't find it in their local store, send me a note and I'll mail you a couple of packages. Chino's aunt and uncle bring several packages for us every time they come back to MN and we have dozens of them! (They travel back and forth from Singapore, Indonesia and the US) We'll never be able to eat all of this and I hate to see it go to waste.

Is that Moxie Java in Rochester?
I found several hits here in Ontario for another company of the same name.
We like spicy.

I had it at Moxies in Victoria, BC.

I make it sort of sweet (with the sweetened coconut and mango chutney) but one nice thing about curry is that you can add as much as you like. Last time I made it for 8 people and everyone said they really liked it (and went back for seconds)

Hmmmmm, wonder if all the Moxies are related? There's at least one near me.
Is there a theme to them? Indo-chinese cuisine perhaps?
