Method

  1. Heat the oil in a medium saucepan. Tip in the onion and ginger, then cook for a few mins until softened. Stir in the curry paste, then cook for 1 min more. Pour over the chopped tomatoes and coconut cream. Bring to the boil, then leave to simmer for 5 mins, adding a little boiling water if the mixture gets too thick.

  2. Tip in the prawns, then cook for 5-10 mins more, depending on how large they are. Serve alongside some plain rice and sprinkle with a little chopped coriander, if you like.

My first attempt at doing a curry, it was very easy and everyone thought it was something special, BUT, I did read the comments made by people and I used coconut milk not the cream about 1/4 tin and I used 3 tsp of curry paste left a little kick but if you like hot currys add more.

Everyone enjoys this easy curry. I usually add a chilli and use about half a jar of paste to give it a bit more kick!

After reading the previous comments I added a couple of garlic cloves and some extra curry paste to give more flavour and the result was delicious! I also added some pepper and mushrooms as I think the curry would have been quite boring without any vegetables. The recipe is really easy and a quick dinner to serve up for the family. I'll definitely be making this again, although next time I might add some chilli to give the curry a bit of a kick.

Thumbs up for this recipe - it is delicious. I added a tiny bit of soft brown sugar - it really needed it.
