Cook the rice according to pack instructions, then set aside. Put the ginger, garlic and tomatoes into a food processor, blend to make a paste, then set aside until you’re ready to cook.
Heat the oil in a large non-stick pan and add the whole spices. Once they sizzle, add the onion, frying over a medium heat for about 10 mins until soft. Add the ground spices and paste, then cook over a low heat, stirring occasionally until the sauce has released the oil back into the pan. Add the prawns, then cook for a few mins until cooked through – the mixture should be quite dry and paste-like.
Stir the cooked rice into the pan to coat it well in the spices. Make sure the rice is heated through, then serve scattered with the coconut.
