Method

  1. Heat the oil in frying pan, then fry the onions over a medium heat until soft and beginning to brown, about 5 mins. Meanwhile, reserve 8 of the tomato wedges, then whizz the remainder in a food processor with the ginger and garlic.
  2. Add the curry paste to the pan for 30 secs. Stir through the tomato mix and remaining tomato wedges, then bubble over a high heat for 5 mins, stirring so the sauce doesn’t catch. Mix in the prawns and peas; simmer until prawns are pink and cooked through. Scatter with coriander, then serve with rice.

Very tasty meal and incredibly simple and easy to make. Agree with previous comments that slightly more cooking time is required. Easy to make ahead and also to make extra sauce to pop in the freezer. Great for a no-fuss mid-week dinner. Serviced with rice and naan bread, delicious!

Lovely! Very simple and looked great too. However, only rated as 4 star as I found the sauce needed to cook for considerably longer than 5 mins - at 5 mins it tasted quite 'raw'. I simmered gently for about a further 20 mins and added both salt & sugar. Suspect this may depend on the paste & tomatoes used so just worth checking and adjusting according to taste. Served as part of a selection of curries for meal with friends. I prepared sauce beforehand, then just reheated & added prawns and peas at the last minute. Will definitely make again and highly recommend.

Have cooked this a few times - it has become a mid week family favourite - it's delicious. we add a grated courgette when adding the tomato - it makes it go a bit further and gives a great texture.

Loved it!- Made it in the slow cooker and added a small tin of coconut milk 1.5 hours before serving as went a bit dry.

Really enjoyed this as it was very tasty without overwhelming spice. Added 3 tbsp of coconut milk to make the sauce a bit looser. Will be adding this as a regular favourite

Very good and tasty, though my son didn't like it very much.
Reduced garlic and curry paste as we don't like things too spicy

This is a really delicious curry and very easy to make. I've made it a few times when we've had visitors - it has gone down very well and I have been forced to hand over the recipe!! Also, my partner who fancies himself as a curry critic, says this is better than meals we've had in some of the fancy curry houses we've been to - a massive compliment!!! It even looks like a real authentic dish, unlike some recipies I've tried.

Very nice curry, not hot at all so you may want to add some chillies. When I cook this again I will add the tomato pieces right at the end of cooking so they stay whole.
