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.

A fantastic receipe and really tasty despite being healthy and low fat: bonus! I've tried it with several different curry paste's but my favourite by far was Pataks cumin and coriander, gives it a kick!

Very impressed. Thought it might be bland but was very tasty. Added spinach, which is obviously good for you andalso made it look more visually interesting and 2 cloves of garlic.
Easy to make as a meal for one or for guests. Will be a definate regular on the menu.

Highly recommended. Quick & easy after a hard day. Ingredients just as in the recipe but added side dish of sliced banana. Used Geetas Medium Mango Chutney (yummy) & nan bread. A half bottle of Oyster Bay white wine made it a perfect meal.

Not one I'd do again, maybe because I tend to make my currys from scratch and found this a bit flavourless
