- Add the chillies, kaffir lime leaves, lemon grass and curry paste. Cook for a further 2 – 3 minutes.
- Stir in the coconut milk, cinnamon stick, peanut butter, tamarind juice, fish sauce, palm sugar and lemon juice.
- Reduce the heat and simmer gently for 15 – 20 minutes until the sauce thickens, stirring occasionally to ensure the sauce doesn’t stick to the bottom of the wok or frying pan.
- Heat the rest of the oil in a wok or large frying pan. Add the prawns and stir-fry for about 3 – 4 minutes or until the prawns turn pink and are slightly firm to the touch.
- Mix the prawns with the sauce.
- Serve garnished with coriander leaves, red chillies and spring onions.
- Curry paste has a far superior, authentic flavour to powdered varieties. Once opened, they should be kept in the fridge and used within 2 months.
