Thai Red Curry Prawn Risotto - ThermoFun

    I diced and cooked some chicken breast in a frypan and added that once it was cooked as I only had 200g prawns. It was delicious!

    I halved the recipe and made this up last night for dinner - absolutely YUMMY!!!

    I cut my green prawns into pieces before adding for the last 2 minutes and they were cooked to perfection after the 5 minutes in the Thermoserver.

    Served with slices of lime to squeeze over to taste - just topped off the flavours!!

    Thank you.

    It was nice. Prawns were not cooked at all following the actual recipe instructions so had to double cooking time. I actually found it tasted better the following day after adding soy sauce and kewpie sriracha on top. Yummo!

    Didnt have any veg stock on hand after hubby cleaned out the fridge so used 2 Massel chicken stock cubes. Also had 600g prawns. It was great. The whole family and neighbour loved it. Will definitely make again. Thanks 😃

    Delicious! Made THAI red curry paste first and left a bit in Thermie for making the risotto . Probably triple the amount of paste . We loved the bite !
