Method

  1. Heat the oil in a deep-sided frying pan and cook the onion for 8-10 mins until it starts to turn golden. Add the ginger, garlic and chilli and cook for 1-2 mins. Stir in the sugar and spices for 1 min, then splash in the vinegar and tomatoes. Season with salt and simmer for 5 mins, stirring, until the sauce thickens.

  2. Stir in the prawns, reduce the heat and cook for 8-10 mins until cooked through – if the sauce gets really thick, add a splash of water. Remove from the heat, stir though most of the coriander. Serve straight from the dish scattered with the remaining coriander and the rice, yogurt, chutney and salad in separate bowls.

I add the prawns for the last 2-3 minutes. They do not need 8-10

First time I've attempted home made curry - very tasty and easy to do. Added some mushrooms which worked well.

I cooked this tonight and found it very tasty, added a whole birds eye chilli and reduced the GM amount. Taking a tip from a previous comment I made a paste with the chilli, garlic and ginger, I added a fair chunk of ginger! Prawns do not need 8-10 mins and the sauce reduces down rather quickly! The carrot and cumin salad worked well with this. Overall a flavoursome and quick curry for a midweek dish. Will definitely cook again, beats a ghee laden takeaway!

A cracking curry, I added some desicated coconut and halved the sugar, I also added some fresh lime juice which worked well

Tasty low fat curry. I made this with chicken breast and added some spinach towards the end of cooking

This is quite spicy, think 1 tbsp of garam masala is a bit much! Also I used normal mustard seed, only half a teaspoon and put them in with other spices! I was worried they wouldn't break down and would cause a nasty mustard crunch but this didn't happen! Lovely dish!

what do you do with the black mustard seeds, how can all these replies say its a great curry if nobody mentions about the black mustard seeds, surely this is cooked at the start to make them pop then add your onions, please make sure you complete the methords before posting this, 0/10

Chanced upon this recipe as a last minute change to dinner one night, boy what a find! it's lovely and bags of flavour. bit more chilli adds a punch if you need it. Do have the carrot & cumin salad too, adds another dimension to the overall dish, will repeat that's for sure

Use fresh tomatoes- tinned are too sour. You can add sugar or mango chutney to help balance that if you've no fresh tomatoes though.
