    This curry is mild enough for everyone to enjoy, which makes it a great choice when introducing children to spicy foods for the first time.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 200g small, even-sized waxy potatoes, scrubbed
    • salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 1 onion, sliced
    • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
    • 2 tablespoons mild curry paste
    • 140ml tin coconut cream
    • 1 cup tinned chopped tomatoes
    • 200g carrots, peeled and sliced
    • 200g cauliflower, cut into bite-sized florets
    • 200ml vegetable stock
    • 200g green beans, cut into short lengths
    • 200g raw peeled prawns, thawed and drained if bought frozen
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander leaves

    Directions
    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:1hour 

    1. Cook the potatoes in a saucepan of lightly salted boiling water for 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.
    2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large heavy-based saucepan, add the onion and fry gently for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic and curry paste and cook for a further 2 minutes, stirring all the time.
    3. Stir in the coconut cream, then add the tomatoes. Simmer uncovered for 2–3 minutes until the mixture resembles a fairly thick paste.
    4. Add the carrots, cauliflower florets and stock, bring to the boil, then cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Add the beans and potatoes and cook for a further 8 minutes.
    5. Stir in the prawns and simmer for 2–3 minutes, or until they turn pink. Season to taste, stir in the chopped coriander and serve straight away.

    This was a big hit with my family. I stuck with the recipe for the sauce but just added any vegetables that I had on hand. Will cook this one again. - 16 Nov 2009

    Something else. Next time I will use a little less curry. A little bit hot for my family's taste - 15 Nov 2009
