About this recipe: This curry dish was originally written for the microwave but I don't have one so have had to adapt it.

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Sweat onion in the oil.
  2. Add curry powder, cornflour, stock, tomato puree, chutney and lemon juice and stir until thickened.

Use frozen prawns to save all the cooking, cooling and peeling.

Other ideas

Use vegetables cut up small to bulk this dish out a bit. It makes a jolly good one pot meal.


If I have run out of mango chutney I use quince jelly or a bit of jam. It just gives the curry a softer flavour.
