    1 tablespoon green tea leaves
    225ml boiling water
    1.5 tablespoon sesame oil
    500g fresh prawns (or prepared if not available)
    1 tablespoon sake
    1 teaspoon curry powder


Put the green tea in a heat-resistant measuring jug and add the boiling water.
Leave to infuse for 15 minutes.
Heat the oil in a frying pan or wok until extremely hot.
Add the prawns, curry and sake and cook for 1 minute over high heat, stirring constantly.
Add the tea and half of the tea leaves and cook for a further minute.
