  • 6 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 3 tbsp curry paste (we used Patak's tikka masala paste)
  • 400g shelled raw king prawn
  • 250g frozen pea

  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.

I made this last week and it was sooo good. My husband and I really enjoyed it even though he prefers a spicier curry he really enjoyed it because of the richness of flavours.
