well you said easy? pataks korma paste can either be used to marinate before hand or added during cooking. I follow the recipe on the back and add coconut milk if I remember to buy it and serve with vegetable rice. - you did say easy!

Hello - we're having a chicken curry tonight using the leftovers from yesterday's roast - am going to pound cumin, coriander and mustard seeds, heat them with chillies, grated ginger and chopped onion, whack in some garlic, turmeric, chopped tomatoes, curry leaves and salt, allow to simmer for a bit before adding coconut milk and letting it simmer for 30 mins or so - will then add chicken to warm through - you could add cooked prawns though? And if you've got raw chicken you'll want to brown it first separately and let it cook in the sauce for 30 mins?

Can't vouch for this recipe but HTH.

that sounds quite good.. don;t have all those bits and bobs. thanks very much

Sorry, got a bit carried away there (!) you can probably leave bits out (eg turmeric is only for colour and curry leaves can't be essential) / replace the base spices with those that you do have - I might use stock instead of the coconut milk etc. Hope you enjoy your meal.

thasnk maria

what i have done is this:

onions and garlic fried with oil and then turmeric

then added some corainder seed and leaf, cumin and cardoman and then fried off the chicken

then added onions back in and then added chopped tomatoes, chick peas and some chicken stock

added some mild chilli powder and curry powder and a bit more turmeric

it is simmering away and tastes delish !

i think i just needed a bit of basic curry instruction ... got my curry mojo going on now grin
