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.

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

Very easy to make and it is a very tasty curry. Needs some veg added to make a more balanced meal though.

By far the easiest and quickest curry to make in the evening. Just serve with some green vegetables. If you've just finished training, it's great with lentils too.

Just looking at the ingredients I knew I wouldn't exactly be inspired this, but how its got 5 stars from over 100 people is beyond me! Its so boring and bland, added some chilli with the ginger and onion because I knew it would need something but it was still edible but very boring. At least add chillis if you like any kind of spice otherwise there is nothing there, I also used less tomato.

Wont be trying this again any time soon....... My Thai food expert next door said that tomatoes just dont feature in Thai cuisine, so that was a mistake - well, a whole can did seem a bit over the top! Coconut cream apparently does not exist in Thailand either, so that was a mistake too - as I had to hunt around for that, finally finding it in Tesco rather than my local asian food emporium! Coconut milk is what Thais normally use, I'm told. It was all a bit watery and overwhelmed by tomatoes. I think I'll hunt down something more authentic next time.
