Boom! Cooked a Jamie Oliver curry years ago and the story of how bad it was still lingers with me. This was quick easy and awesome!!:) I just followed it parrot fashion but might mix it up in the future. Wasn't too dull either, I thought mild curry paste and coconut cream would make it spiceless but it was fab:):)

Fantastic!  I used Waitrose's Goan Curry Paste on the vague assumption that it would be more likely to go with fish.  I added some aubergine with the onions and next time would perhaps add some other veg as well. Quick, easy and delicious.

Absolutely stunning dish, really really loved this. Added the spuds and beans as others have suggested. So much flavour

I used Pataks Rogan Josh paste, a chicken knorr stock pot, had run out of vegetable stock, coconut milk and large frozen prawns, served with Basmati rice. Was quick and easy to make and so tasty, I made for my both myself and my son who is a great curry fan. Will make this again soon.

This recipe was fantastic! I did it with thai red paste and coconut milk, as i didn't have any coconut cream, so i left out the stock. I simmered it for about 15 mins before adding the prawns to thicken the sauce further, and it was absolutely delicious! My boyfriend said it was the best Thai dish he has ever had! Very easy to make, mostly store cupboard ingredients and super quick for a mid week tea! Will be trying this again with other fish and meats.

This was rated the best curry my partner had EVER eaten :) too spicy for myself but he was blown away. He loves super spicy food, so I used 1 red chilli n kept the seeds, but changed the coconut cream for milk to make it healthier

I used a tin of chopped tomatoes and a tin of light coconut milk, with Pataks Jalfrezi curry paste and left out the stock. I thought I was going to have a disaster as it was very wet but I simmered it for ten minutes and it reduced and came together beautifully. Totally yummy. Used raw prawns but they only need about 4 minutes at the end to cook them through. Nice with noodles instead of rice for a change.

My partner and I love this. We just used coconut milk, we will definitely put this on our shopping list again
