Prawn curry in a hurry

Prawn curry in a hurry


2 tbsp curry paste (we used Patak’s Origional Balti curry paste)

1 onion, finely sliced

200g large raw or cooked prawns, defrosted if frozen

400g can chopped tomatoes with garlic

large bunch coriander, leaves and stalks chopped


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.
