Accessories you need
See Recipe Community for the Coconut Cream recipe by Russell Blaikie. See the Everyday Cookbook for Cooked rice and TM chicken stock concentrate. TM chicken stock concentrate and water can be replaced with 100g of liquid chicken stock.
This makes quite a hot curry. Halve the quantity of bird's eye chillies if you prefer a milder heat to your curry. Freeze any leftover curry paste in a snap lock sandwich bags or an ice cube tray for up to three months. Substitute the prawns with about 700g skinless chicken thigh, cut into 2cm cubes. Saute the chicken as per the prawns in the recipe above, leave chicken in the mixing bowl while you add the liquids and cook over a low heat until sauce thickens. This should take about 30-40 minutes.
