  1. Heat oil in a large frying pan or wok. Fry the curry paste and lemongrass for 1 min, until fragrant. Tip in peppers and new potatoes, then stir them to coat in the paste. Cook for 1-2 mins. Pour in coconut milk, stock and kaffir lime leaves, then bring to the boil. Simmer and cook for 15 mins, until potatoes are just tender.
  2. Add remaining ingredients, but if you’re freezing don’t add spinach or coriander yet, and cook until the prawns turn pink, about 4 mins. Serve, with some extra lime wedges, if you like, or cool before freezing in containers.

Lovely and freezes well. Kids also love it. left out the potato as I in particular dislike potato in spicy foods added green beans and served with rice

Exceptionally tasty! Nice varied textures and balanced flavours. Definitely the best thai curry recipe I have tried. Added an extra spoonful of paste for more kick. Even if cooking for two I would follow the amounts specified and freeze the rest. Looking forward to the next helping already.

Very good! I replaced the spinach with some other green veg, such as broccoli.
The first time I made this I did a little rice to go with it - but this was completely unnecessary.

Yum, yum this is the best thai curry recipe I have found . I like to switch the new potatoes for sweet potato and the spinach for kale. It can be a bit salty depending on the paste you use so I made the stock rather weak to help reduce this.

Love this recipe, it's so easy.
Made it a couple of times now & it's becoming a firm favourite.
Last night switched the spinach for pak choi, worked just as well.
