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.

Really easy to make, and tasted great but I would serve mine without the Chilli next time! Great quick meal for mid week!

Extremely easy to make and easy to play about with. I used balti curry paste and used mixed vegestables instead of the peas. Will try chicken next time and add more crushed chilli.

What a great store cupboard recipe! Served this to all the family and everyone loved it - even our sometimes fussy 4 year old! Fantastic will be making again and again.
