Ingredients

Method

Drizzle some oil from the curry paste jar into a wok or large frying pan, gently heat, then add the onion. Sizzle over a low heat for 4 mins until the onion softens, then stir in the paste and cook for a few mins longer. Stir in the prawns and tomatoes, then bring to a simmer. If using raw prawns, simmer until they have changed colour and are cooked through. Season, if you like, then add the coriander just before serving with boiled rice and naan bread.

Delicious! I used tikka paste and added 2 cloves of garlic as I only had plain chopped tomatoes. Will be making again :)

This tasted delicious and was really pleased how little time it took to cook. My partner & I are dieting (calorie counting) at the moment so this recipe was great for that as it's low in calories.

Really easy and quite rich for what it is. Not to hot either. It tastes lovely, I will definitely be using this recipe again! (It's only 2 syns per serving for people following slimming world diet)

Followed the recipe exactly. It tasted nothing like a curry! All I could taste were tomatoes. And I overcooked my prawns. They were like pieces of rubber :( Disaster!

This recipe was very quick and easy to make (start to finish 15mins). Major plus. The compromise was in the flavour (not very interesting). Might make it again if pushed for time but I'm sure there are tastier, quick options out there.

Loved it my 11 year old daughter made it for me and her dad and it was lovely so if a 11 year old can make it anyone can

Absolutely delicious and so easy to make. Doubled up the quantity and used rogan josh curry paste as I didn't have any balti.

Will definitely be making again. So yummy!!!

Fantastic low-fat, quick and easy mid week dinner. This is becoming a firm favourite in our house. I am currently following a slimming plan and this easy but tasty curry fits in nicely and I am still seeing the results I want on the scales. I use chicken instead of prawns and add in a tablespoon of dried chilli flakes for that extra kick and 2 cloves of garlic. Served with basmati rice and garlic naan bread. Very nice indeed.

This is a great recipe and so simple. My husband makes it often and he's no cook!
It's really easy to vary it . I often add sliced peppers if I've got some that need using up. Sometimes I do it with butternut squash instead of the prawns for a quick veggie curry. I've also done it with chunky white fish. Thw possibilities are endless!

In reply to Richard, I agree with Clairella - and would also add that there are times when all we need or want is an idea along with a little mid-week inspiration. I've made this recipe a few times now and it's always delicious and SIMPLE (that's the point) I occasionally add coconut milk powder to add another dimension as the mood takes me and some chopped cherry tomatoes.

Dear Richard:
"28 September 2011
Richard commented on this recipe
Can I ask what is innovative about this ? Its straight from the back of a curry paste jar."

Some of us don't come on this site for innovative recipes. We come to find quick, easy and affordable meals to cook when the shops are shut and therefore we are unable to peruse the curry paste jar isle. Will rate over the weekend after trying. *Smiley face*
