Recipe by Medlyn Lee
1 onion peeled and halved
2 cloves garlic
100g red curry paste (see Everyday Cooking for Every Family)
1-2 tbsp tamarind puree*
500g peeled prawns
3 tomatoes halved
Place onion and garlic into TM bowl and chop for 5 seconds on speed 7.
Add oil and curry paste and sauté for 3 minutes at 100ºC on speed 1.
Add tamarind puree and prawns and cook for 10 minutes at 100ºC on Reverse + speed soft.
Add tomatoes and cook a further 5 minutes at 100ºC on Reverse + speed soft.
Serve with steamed rice and sprigs of fresh coriander or mint.
*Tamarind puree is available in most Asian supermarkets. Tamarind juice can also be used but increase the quantity to 55g.
Don’t be tempted to use a commercial red curry paste, you will not get the same fragrant result.
