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.

This was sooo yummy and so easy. I thought it was going to be really watery but it wasn't at all. Didn#t fry my onion in oil, put it straight in with the paste - even more low fat :)

Surprised at the rating of this recipe as I found this very bland - tasted more of tomatoes than of curry. Very disappointed!

Great dish, really quick and easy. My children found it a little hot so I would use less curry paste, or a milder one, next time. I also added garlic and only used half the quantity of tomatoes as suggested. I will definately be making this again.

Excellent curry, and really simple too. I used Korma paste, rather than Balti, to tone it down a little. Scrumptious!

Great recipe, good for a tea in the week. I would probably only add 1/2 tin of tomotes next time as was too tomatoey for me, but loved the freshness of the prawns and corriander.
I added spinach and mushrooms too.

This recipe was really easy and delicious too. I added a couple of cloves of chopped garlic to the onion. (If you have to cut up an onion, then you may as well cut up some garlic...right?)

I would definitely do this meal again.

Got my husband to make this: he did well! Great for a mid week fast supper but don't think I'd go as far as serving it to guests.
