Full of spice, this warming curry is ideal for a filling and flavoursome meal on a cold autumnal day.

Serves 2

Ingredients
1 tbsp olive oil
500g chicken pieces, on the bone
1 onion, finely sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
10g peeled, crushed ginger
2 tsp ground turmeric
1½ tbsp Mauritian curry powder
200ml water
150g tomatoes, chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste
200g raw prawns
Handful of chopped coriander leaves

Method
1 Heat the olive oil in a large heavy-bottomed saucepan set over medium-high heat, add the chicken, and sauté until lightly browned. Add the onion, garlic, and ginger, and fry, stirring, for a few minutes until the raw smell dissipates.
2 Add the ground turmeric, Mauritian curry powder, water, and tomatoes. Season to taste and simmer for 15 minutes until almost cooked. Add the prawns and cook for a further 5 minutes, or until cooked through.
3 Check the seasoning, sprinkle with the coriander, and serve hot with rice, chapattis, or bread.
