Prawn, Tomato & Coconut Curry
As the weather gets cooler our bodies seem to cry our for warm and comforting foods - and one of my favourites is a curry! Unfortunately most curries can be high in fat so a no no if you are trying to lose weight.
However, there are lots of ways to cut the calories and fat down on a curry and below is one of my absolute favorites which is a prawn, tomato and coconut curry - and it is low calorie!
My Prawn Curry Recipe (serves 2)
- 1 x tbsp of olive oil
- 1 red onion finely chopped
- 1 large green chilli finely chopped
- 4 crushed cloves of garlic
- 1 tbsp of tomato paste
- 1 large bunch of brocolli
- 1 large red capsicum
- 4 large tomatoes – diced
- 1/4 of a cup of mild curry paste
- 1 cup of evaporated coconut flavored milk - low fat kind
- 350g of fresh prawns
- 1 cup of vegetable stock – salt reduced
- 1 bunch finely chopped corriander
- 1 cup of basmati or wholegrain rice
On a medium heat lightly cook the red onion, garlic, brocolli, tomatoes, capsicum and chilli. Then stir in the curry paste and tomato paste. Then add the stock and evaporated milk and gently cook for around 10 minutes.
Next add in the prawns and corriander and cook for another 10 minutes then serve with your rice! The wholegrain rice is a better option as it is packed with fibre but the basmati rice is low GI so still a good option.
