Prawn, Courgette and Green Pepper Curry

Sadly I don't have a photograph for this recipe. I made it for my friends mum and couldn't whip my phone out at the dinner, it was too irresistible for a photograph.

You will need (serves 4):

800g uncooked king prawns (or any prawns)
400g tin of good quality coconut milk
1 green pepper, chopped into pieces
2 courgettes, sliced
2 onions, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
4cm piece of ginger, finely chopped
1 lemongrass stalk, thinly sliced
2 tbsp korma paste
1/2 green chilli
a packet of fresh coriander, finely chopped
1 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp paprika
3 crushed kaffir lime leaves

Firstly, fry the onions, garlic and ginger in a little vegetable oil for a few minutes, then add the courgettes and pepper. Cook the vegetables for about 4 minutes, then pour in the coconut milk and all the other ingredients apart from the prawns. Cook the dish for roughly 15 minutes, and add the prawns when you are nearly ready to serve. They should take a few minutes to go pink. Serve with boiled rice, and garnish with fresh coriander.
