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.

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.

Delicious recipe! Add more curry paste for a stronger flavour. One of my favourites!

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

Very easy to make and it is a very tasty curry. Needs some veg added to make a more balanced meal though.

By far the easiest and quickest curry to make in the evening. Just serve with some green vegetables. If you've just finished training, it's great with lentils too.

Just looking at the ingredients I knew I wouldn't exactly be inspired this, but how its got 5 stars from over 100 people is beyond me! Its so boring and bland, added some chilli with the ginger and onion because I knew it would need something but it was still edible but very boring. At least add chillis if you like any kind of spice otherwise there is nothing there, I also used less tomato.
