  • 6 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 3 tbsp curry paste (we used Patak's tikka masala paste)
  • 400g shelled raw king prawn
  • 250g frozen pea
  • small bunch coriander, leaves chopped
  • basmati rice or chapatis, to serve

Method

  1. Heat the oil in frying pan, then fry the onions over a medium heat until soft and beginning to brown, about 5 mins. Meanwhile, reserve 8 of the tomato wedges, then whizz the remainder in a food processor with the ginger and garlic.

  2. Add the curry paste to the pan for 30 secs. Stir through the tomato mix and remaining tomato wedges, then bubble over a high heat for 5 mins, stirring so the sauce doesn’t catch. Mix in the prawns and peas; simmer until prawns are pink and cooked through. Scatter with coriander, then serve with rice.

First things first, this curry was absolutely excellent and I'll be sure to make it again. Particularly appreciate the promotion of enthusiastic garlic use. I'm yet to invest in a food processor, but found that this didn't affect the final product at all given a little more care with the chopping. Also added a red pepper, a leek and a pack of mushrooms just for some extra matter. Though it does admittedly take me longer to chop vegetables than the average chef, I do agree that a 20 minute total prep time is a touch optimistic. Saying that, it was definitely worth any excess time spent tending to its needs. Easy five stars.

Wow! This curry was amazing! All the flavours worked so well together and the pureed tomatoes made a brilliant saucy consistency. I loved the addition of peas and the prawns were lovely. I added some cod which I had in the freezer as it needed using up and it went really well. Served with wholegrain pilau rice and plenty of naan bread. Fantastic.

Yes, this is a pretty simple recipe but if you really want a nice curry recipe get a hold of Madhur Jaffrey's Ultimate Curry Bible. Don't be put off by the number of spices for each recipe. Once you have all the spices in your pantry you can bang out a curry in no time!

Very tasty meal and incredibly simple and easy to make. Agree with previous comments that slightly more cooking time is required. Easy to make ahead and also to make extra sauce to pop in the freezer. Great for a no-fuss mid-week dinner. Serviced with rice and naan bread, delicious!

Lovely! Very simple and looked great too. However, only rated as 4 star as I found the sauce needed to cook for considerably longer than 5 mins - at 5 mins it tasted quite 'raw'. I simmered gently for about a further 20 mins and added both salt & sugar. Suspect this may depend on the paste & tomatoes used so just worth checking and adjusting according to taste. Served as part of a selection of curries for meal with friends. I prepared sauce beforehand, then just reheated & added prawns and peas at the last minute. Will definitely make again and highly recommend.

Have cooked this a few times - it has become a mid week family favourite - it's delicious. we add a grated courgette when adding the tomato - it makes it go a bit further and gives a great texture.

Loved it!- Made it in the slow cooker and added a small tin of coconut milk 1.5 hours before serving as went a bit dry.
