Ingredients:

  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 100g plain cream cheese – any type, I use Philadelphia extra light and it works fine
  • 4 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp Thai green curry paste
  • 100g cooked and peeled King Prawns
  • Rice

Method:

  1. Cook the onion until softened, using FryLight or 1tbsp oil
  2. Add the curry paste and cook on a low heat for 2-3 minutes
  3. Beat the cream cheese and milk until smooth
  4. Add to the pan and heat until the cream cheese has melted
  5. Add more milk until you get the consistency you want – add it slowly and a small amount at a time, as you can always add more but you can’t take it away!
  6. At this point, taste the curry and add more curry paste if you need to (depending on your personal preference)
  7. Add the prawns and cook for 1-2 minutes until they are hot. Don’t cook it for too long as the prawns are already cooked, so will go rubbery if you overcook them!
  8. Serve the curry with rice of your choice

Tips and Ideas:

  • Swap the prawns for chicken to make a Thai green chicken curry
  • Add any vegetables you want – green beans, aubergines, baby corn and peppers work well
  • Use quorn chicken or just vegetables for a veggie alternative
  • Swap the Thai green curry paste for a Thai red curry paste or any curry paste
  • Make your own curry paste from scratch
