  • 400g can chopped tomato with garlic
  • large bunch coriander, leaves and stalks chopped

Method

  1. Drizzle some oil from the curry paste jar into a wok or large frying pan, gently heat, then add the onion. Sizzle over a low heat for 4 mins until the onion softens, then stir in the paste and cook for a few mins longer. Stir in the prawns and tomatoes, then bring to a simmer. If using raw prawns, simmer until they have changed colour and are cooked through. Season, if you like, then add the coriander just before serving with boiled rice and naan bread.

This is brilliant with Patak's Madras paste instead of Balti and a LOT of coriander.

Absolutly delicious! Lovely fresh tomato flavour but I did have to add about 3 times the amount of balti paste to make it 'curry' like - but it would be equally as nice without it all together! Made half with chicken to please my prawn-hating boyfriend & he loved it too!

This dish was quick and simple to prepare and cook but it tasted far better than anything you would get pre-prepared in a jar. I would highly recommend. After tasting this recipe, I don't think I would go back to a jar again. Thanks :-)

Very tasty and incredibly simple to shop for and cook - perfect for those who don't usually have the time for cooking (like me!)

Very easy and tastes very nice! I added some cashews and cooked the tomato sauce for about 20 minutes until it was very "jammy" and then stirred in the prawns at the last second. Yummy!

This curry was really tasty and so easy to make. I added an extra tablespoon of curry paste as I like lots of flavour in my curry I also used chicken insteas of prawns. I served it with toasted wholemeal pittas. Loved it!
