Courgette and Prawn Curry

So, it has been a hectic few days with the hund being sick.  Not a lot of cooking going on and it was nice to get back into the Kitchen today.  We love a curry in this house, but we all know they can be pretty laden with lard!  We made a great courgette (zucchini) and prawn curry that is really easy to make and it tasted really delicious.  A quick meal that takes only 15 min and serves a family of 4.  One thing that helps us is to have a stash of various curry pastes.  We make all our own from scratch and put them in the freezer for later use following Jamie Oliver’s recipes Curry Pastes


  • 1 large white onion
  • 4 large courgettes – diced and seeds removed
  • 1 or 2 large red chilis – dependent on how hot you like it
  • 2 tbsp Rogan Josh curry paste – see above link for paste recipe
  • 400g chopped tomato
  • 400g can green lentils
  • 350g peeled prawns
  • Large handful fresh coriander
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • salt/pepper to season


  • Dice courgettes and onions; finely chop chili
  • Melt coconut in a large pan, add onions and cook until soft.  Add courgette and chili and cook for a further 2/3 min
  • Add curry paste; cook until everything coated with the paste.
  • Add chopped tomato and half can water; cook for 5 min
  • Add prawns, lentils and coriander
  • Cook until all ingredients are cooked through.  Add the lime juice, season to taste.  Serve on a bed of basmati rice, or my favourite is a bed of baby spinach
