  • I’ve always steered away from the red curries thinking they were way too hot and spicy, but this one looks so yum – minus the coriander leaves. I can always add extra coconut cream to reduce the heat.


  • Thanks for sharing


  • Sounds OK – I would cook the curry paste, coconut cream, etc. then add the prawns and coriander. Quicker and the prawns won’t go hard.

    • The prawns are only cooked for a couple of minutes.. they stay succulent and juicy :-)


  • Sounds great and not too spicy too!


  • love the quick and easy meals for dinner and the red curry is a winner in my household
