    This is a home-style South Indian prawn curry recipe from my husband's family. It is simple and quick to make. It contains no coconut so is not sweet, just mostly juicy and as spicy as you like it. Serve with basmati rice or an Indian flatbread.

    This mild curry is wonderful with a cucumber raita (see footnote) and crusty bread to mop up its delicious sauce.

    Adapted from various other recipes found on the internet, I tried this in order to cook dinner for my wife and me last week as part of one of my fast days (when I restrict myself to 600 calories). The actual curry is around 300 calories per portion, and I had it with a couple of tablespoonsful of cooked wholegrain basmati rice (my wife is not on my regime so had more rice, and accompanied it with chutneys and yoghurt). We both thought it was very tasty, and I found it a satisfying meal (although with the rice it added up to two thirds of my daily calorie allowance!).

    A tasty curry with a spicy kick, mellowed with reduced-fat coconut milk. The addition of fresh mango not only adds to the colour and appeal, but boosts the vitamin content of the dish. Serve with warm naan bread and a favourite Indian chutney.

    A basic red Thai curry using bought curry paste to save on time but you can bulk it up with red or yellow peppers, spring onions and snap peas. Try it with thin slices of beef or chicken instead of prawns. Serve with hot rice.
