  • tbsp coconut (or vegetable) oil
  • 1 essential Waitrose onion, finely sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 15g fresh root ginger, cut into matchsticks
  • 1 tbsp tomato purée
  • 1 tsp medium curry powder, heaped
  • 2 essential Waitrose tomatoes, diced
  • 400ml essential Waitrose coconut milk
  • 1 essential Waitrose cauliflower, broken into small florets
  • 300g essential Waitrose raw king prawns, drained on kitchen paper
  • ½ lime, zest and juice
  • coriander leaves, to garnish


  1. Heat 1⁄4 tbsp oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat and add the onion, garlic and ginger; season and fry for 8 minutes, until softened and starting to caramelise. Add the tomato purée and curry powder and fry for another 2 minutes, then tip in the tomatoes and coconut milk and simmer for 10 minutes more, until reduced.

  2. Meanwhile, pulse the cauliflower in a food processor in short bursts to rice- sized grains. Heat the remaining 11⁄4 tbsp oil in another large frying pan until smoking hot, add the cauliflower, season and fry over a high heat for 5 minutes.

  3. Add the prawns to the curry sauce and simmer for 3-4 minutes, until pink and cooked through; season with salt, plus the lime zest and juice. Serve the prawn curry with the cauli rice, scattered with the coriander leaves.
