Method

  1. Heat the oil in a wok and stir-fry the pepper, whites of the onions, and broccoli for a few mins to soften. Stir in the curry paste and prawns, and cook for 1 min more.
  2. Add a splash of water, then crumble in the coconut rice, breaking it up with a spoon. Tip in the peas, beansprouts and greens of the onions, and stir-fry until everything has heated through, then add the basil and fish sauce to taste.

Very quick and easy, and extremely tasty. I used John Torode's thai green curry paste from the prawn squash and pineapple curry on this site http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/thai-prawn-squash-pineapple-curry which is easily the best thai curry paste I've made (and better than the shop bought jars by a mile). I doubled the veg and used 100g basmati rice which I just cooked the usual way before tipping in at the end. I also steamed the broccoli briefly before adding as I find otherwise the stalks are half cooked and the florets turned to mash. Will definitely be making this again!

To make this recipe even quicker, easier and cheaper for midweek, I replaced all the veg with a pack of stir-fry veg mix. It's a household regular now!

Fab, tasty, quick meal for mid week. I omitted the beansprouts (just coz I didn't have any). Had a nice kick.
