Method

  1. Heat the oil in a deep-sided frying pan and cook the onion for 8-10 mins until it starts to turn golden. Add the ginger, garlic and chilli and cook for 1-2 mins. Stir in the sugar and spices for 1 min, then splash in the vinegar and tomatoes. Season with salt and simmer for 5 mins, stirring, until the sauce thickens.
  2. Stir in the prawns, reduce the heat and cook for 8-10 mins until cooked through – if the sauce gets really thick, add a splash of water. Remove from the heat, stir though most of the coriander. Serve straight from the dish scattered with the remaining coriander and the rice, yogurt, chutney and salad in separate bowls.

After second try, I would like to rescore the recipe and give it 5 stars. Very nice!

Nice, easy recipe. Not for a dinner party, but a quick mid-week supper. I didn't have mustard seed, but nigella worked nicely. Will cook again.

I love this! I've had it several times and if you buy fresh prawns it freezes really well.

I'm on weightwatchers and this is very low in fat so it's great for anyone watching their weight. I wouldn't bother with the salad they recommend though it was a bit bland.

Very mediocre...I cook a lot of curries, and this one seemed to lack any depth of flavour....

Mmm - very nice and very tastey but the cooking times for the prawns seemed off.. I had large raw prawn which I added to the tomato curry sauce and cooked for 8 minutes but they ended up very overcooked and chewy..

It could be that the sauce was too hot but I think 5 mins would have been nearer the mark.

The curry flavour was lovely - I did add more chilli and more garma masala but that's just a personal taste thing.

I will def try again.

I make a lot of curries. I have made this particular curry several times with chicken (not prawns so far) after seeing it in the magazine. It has received great praise from my picky husband who is not generally one to go overboard on compliments! My kids (one of whom is also very picky) also love it. I love a flavorful curry but don't like anything very hot and this just fits the bill as its really tasty without being too hot although if you want it hotter just add more chilli as other reviewers have suggested. This will definitely be a regular in our household

Though this was excellent and very close to a prawn curry that an indian friend makes but she refuses to give me the recipe!

I've made this twice now. Second time adding a little chilli. Liked it a lot and will make it again and again.

I made this as the recipe and found it very good,easy and tasted great,spicy enough but could easily be made hotter. I didn't find that any one spice dominated as in previous comments. Certainly will make it again, perfect when you want a hassle free dish.

Very good curry. Quick to put together. Lovely with the carrot and cumin salad.

Won't try it again. Only taste was cumin. Totally boring.

Was quite tasty, but the ingredients seemed to clash slightly and something, maybe cumin, overtook the dish. Needs tweaking.

Nice and easy mid-week meal to make. Made it with chicken and turned out nicely - nothing to get too excited about though.

Nice punchy flavour - put a bit more chilli in - as I like my curries hot - also needed more tinned tomatoes

This dish was easy to prepare and loved by everyone. I did add more chopped tomatoes than stated to make a more saucy curry.
