    Wanted to use up some tamarmind puree so this was a good choice. We enjoyed the meal. Prawns were perfectly cooked. Fresh tomatoes were a nice touch. I used commercial red curry paste and can see that it would have had better flavour with a home made paste.

     Nice flavours but disappointing result. The prawns end up being cooked for 15 minutes. They shrivelled up and were tough. Not sure they need to be cooked for this long. I would swap the steps that the tomato is added and the prawns are added.
