Method

  1. Heat the oil in a medium saucepan. Tip in the onion and ginger, then cook for a few mins until softened. Stir in the curry paste, then cook for 1 min more. Pour over the chopped tomatoes and coconut cream. Bring to the boil, then leave to simmer for 5 mins, adding a little boiling water if the mixture gets too thick.
  2. Tip in the prawns, then cook for 5-10 mins more, depending on how large they are. Serve alongside some plain rice and sprinkle with a little chopped coriander, if you like.

I forgot to star rate it and I meant to say there tomato flavour dominated

I cooked this for a friend on Thursday night and my husband went out for dinner so I was pleased to be able to cook a fish dish (he doesn't like fish). My friend and I really enjoyed it served with Thai fragrant rice from sainsburys. First time I'd used coconut cream, I used blue dragon 200g block which I just cut a quarter off. Used a whole tin of toms which I'd say it needed. Maybe when people use coconut milk instead of cream a whole tin is too much. To mayor flavour did dominate the dish though. I added more paste as others suggested and agree it needed it. I so added frozen peas. Will cook again, probably with chicken instead of prawns for my hubby!

This was good, especially as it was so quick but felt it was lacking something, I think when I cook it again (and I probably will) I will add some vegetables as well. Spinach sounds good and maybe beans and other stirfry ingredients. I also used coconut milk not cream as that was what I had, it was very watery but then I think Thai curries are always a lot thinner than indian ones.

I made this last night and it was great! Made a few additions though... I added garlic, chopped peppers, seasoning, boiling water and fish sauce. I also like others used 3 tsp of the curry paste and 3/4 tomato.

Will definitely make again!

No stars! I can only imagine all these rave reviews were comparing this to their usual English diet of jacket potatoes or fishfingers. This is an utterly bland curry that I wouldn't serve up to a pig.

It's nice, but you have to remember to add a little bit of salt.

Used ground ginger, and like lots of others 3/4 tin of tomatoes. I used 3 tsp of the paste, which gave it a nice zing. Another winner in Mac's kitchen!

I'm not a big fan of prawns, but do eat from time to time. I've got to say the Thai curry was delicious. It was easy and quick to make - a real winner!

My first attempt at doing a curry, it was very easy and everyone thought it was something special, BUT, I did read the comments made by people and I used coconut milk not the cream about 1/4 tin and I used 3 tsp of curry paste left a little kick but if you like hot currys add more.

Everyone enjoys this easy curry. I usually add a chilli and use about half a jar of paste to give it a bit more kick!

After reading the previous comments I added a couple of garlic cloves and some extra curry paste to give more flavour and the result was delicious! I also added some pepper and mushrooms as I think the curry would have been quite boring without any vegetables. The recipe is really easy and a quick dinner to serve up for the family. I'll definitely be making this again, although next time I might add some chilli to give the curry a bit of a kick.

Thumbs up for this recipe - it is delicious. I added a tiny bit of soft brown sugar - it really needed it.
