  • 2 tbsp curry paste (we used Patak's Origional Balti curry paste)
  • 1 onion, finely sliced



    Onions are endlessly versatile and an essential ingredient in countless recipes. Native to Asia…

  • 200g large raw or cooked prawn, defrosted if frozen



    There are thousands of different species of prawn, but tiger, king and North Atlantic are the…

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


  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.

Delicious! I used tikka paste and added 2 cloves of garlic as I only had plain chopped tomatoes. Will be making again :)

This tasted delicious and was really pleased how little time it took to cook. My partner & I are dieting (calorie counting) at the moment so this recipe was great for that as it's low in calories.

Really easy and quite rich for what it is. Not to hot either. It tastes lovely, I will definitely be using this recipe again! (It's only 2 syns per serving for people following slimming world diet)

Followed the recipe exactly. It tasted nothing like a curry! All I could taste were tomatoes. And I overcooked my prawns. They were like pieces of rubber :( Disaster!

This recipe was very quick and easy to make (start to finish 15mins). Major plus. The compromise was in the flavour (not very interesting). Might make it again if pushed for time but I'm sure there are tastier, quick options out there.

Loved it my 11 year old daughter made it for me and her dad and it was lovely so if a 11 year old can make it anyone can
