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.

I did this after a long day at work in London. Grabbed the ingredients, got home, shoved it all together and it was absolutely delicious! I experiment all the time but my daughter said this is one of her favourites! Really flavoursome, filling and satisfying. A real favourite.

Could someone please tell me if you are supposed to put the praws in frozen or defrost them overnight? Thank you.

Brilliant! I also added a bit of Brown Mustard seeds to it. I also added some 'alphabet' pasta in it as the prawns weren't that many.. I suppose you could add rice instead of pasta.

Good but I followed the advice above and didn't use all the tomato called for, which I think was a good idea. Instead, I skinned some slightly old baby plum tomatoes and "mushed" them up a bit in the cooking. Also, I didn't have any fresh ginger so added dried, ground ginger instead. I think fresh would have been significantly better.

I read the comments before making this recipe, so doubled the curry paste and glad I did. This was a really tasty, filling curry which I'll be making again.

Very easy and really tasty. Added full can of tomatoes and was still nice & saucy without being watery. Also added red pepper, splash of fish sauce and lots of ginger. Recommended - will be making again.
