  • 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.

Highly recommended. Quick & easy after a hard day. Ingredients just as in the recipe but added side dish of sliced banana. Used Geetas Medium Mango Chutney (yummy) & nan bread. A half bottle of Oyster Bay white wine made it a perfect meal.

Not one I'd do again, maybe because I tend to make my currys from scratch and found this a bit flavourless
