    This is a great tomato-based Indian dish from one of Madhur Jaffrey's books. Serve with rice and steamed vegetables or fried potatoes.

      A good curry, clear instructions, easy to prepare, and quickly prepared, although I let the sauce cook for longer than directed, before adding the prawns, curry never loses by cooking longer! Spicy without being too hot, I served this on steamed rice and we enjoyed a very good supper!
