2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
2 medium kumara
200g fresh mushrooms

Cooking Instructions

Heat 2 tbsp oil in a deep frying pan; add cubed kumara and cook for about 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the Thai red curry paste and mix well then stir in half the coconut cream. Simmer for about 10 minutes until the kumara is soft. Slice the mushrooms and add to pan along with prawns and remaining coconut cream. Bring back to the boil and remove from heat. In a clean pan crisp the strips of kumara in oil, till golden brown.

Serving Instructions

To serve, pile rice in the centre of a bowl and spoon curry around it. Garnish with kumara crisps and optional lime wedges or a sprig of lemon grass. Serves 2 to 3.
