Method

  1. Heat a large wide pan and dry-fry the curry paste with the onions for 4-5 mins until the onion begins to soften. Add the rice to the pan and stir to coat in the curry paste. Add the stock, then bring to the boil.

  2. Cover the pan and turn the heat down to low. Leave the rice to simmer slowly for 12-15 mins until all the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is cooked. Turn off the heat and stir in the prawns, peas and chilli. Cover the pan and leave to stand for 5 mins.

  3. Fluff up the rice grains with a fork and season if you want. Scatter over the coriander and serve with lemon wedges.

I added spinach, tomato and courgette and the end result was lovely. Went down a treat with the husband! Will try the kedgeree next.

Very easy to prepare and cook, ideal for me with two little ones, took out kids portions before adding the chilli, very tasty. Will try with chicken, in fact any cooked meat or fish could be added, might try some other versions.

I made this for friends who came to dinner, one who is lactose intolerant and they all loved this recipe! I had never made it before so was taking a gamble but it turned out great! I used brown rice instead of basmati so added about half a pint extra of water while it was cooking. The lemon wedges and coriander garnish made it look great and I served it with Tzatsiki to counter the spiciness. Would definitely recommend!!

Very little effort for something that was delicious .. I also doubled the prawns. Next time I would add some cardamon and turmeric .. will definitely be making again soon.
