  • 6 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 3 tbsp curry paste (we used Patak's tikka masala paste)
  • 400g shelled raw king prawn
  • 250g frozen pea
  • small bunch coriander, leaves chopped
  • basmati rice or chapatis, to serve

Method

  1. Heat the oil in frying pan, then fry the onions over a medium heat until soft and beginning to brown, about 5 mins. Meanwhile, reserve 8 of the tomato wedges, then whizz the remainder in a food processor with the ginger and garlic.

  2. Add the curry paste to the pan for 30 secs. Stir through the tomato mix and remaining tomato wedges, then bubble over a high heat for 5 mins, stirring so the sauce doesn’t catch. Mix in the prawns and peas; simmer until prawns are pink and cooked through. Scatter with coriander, then serve with rice.

Made this instead of getting a takeaway!! Was really pleased with the results! I did use a little more curry paste than the recipe said, and also half a tin of chopped tomatoes as I like alot of sauce!! Have leftovers in the freezer and will make again for sure!

Delicious, quick and healthy too. Added some fresh chilli to the ginger/garlic paste and a quick sprinkle of garam masala before serving.

What a lovely curry! I added a bit of extra chilling with the onions to give it a bit more of a kick.

This is one of the simplest, quickest, freshest curries ever and I have made it several times. I am a veggie, so add a quorn fillet instead of prawns, but I have made it for a friend with prawns and it went down a treat!

Only used 5 garlic cloves and only 2 tbsp curry paste, as my husband doesnt like curries that are too hot, this was just perfect and he really enjoyed it! will keep this as a run up for Christmas for my son who is a curry fan
