Prawn curry

I am currently emptying the freezer.  There are many prawns in the freezer, because former primary victim is very fond, but rarely cooked, so a backlog has developed.

So what to make which I would enjoy ... prawn curry... treating what some people think is a big treat as a fairly bland protein source.  And, it worked... big style - have had seconds, which I rarely do!


1 leek, chopped
1 tbsp mild olive oil
1 red pepper
Handful of green beans
1 tbsp curry paste (tandoori in this case)
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tin tomatoes
prawns (200g ish)


I defrosted the prawns,  don't suppose it's essential, but it was a ruse to make me use them!

1.  Saute leek in olive oil, add chopped pepper and green beans.
2.  When a little soft add curry paste and garlic and a cup of water - lid in and simmer until veg are softish.
3.  Add tin tomatoes, simmer for another 10 minutes.
4.  Add prawns, and simmer gently until heated through - about 3-4 minutes.
5.  Serve with rice/ naan.
