Sweet Potato, Prawn & Spinach Curry



Yes, this is yet again another slow cooker recipe. I've been using it so much more recently and finding out many new ways of using it. This week I cooked a sweet potato, prawn and spinach curry which turned out amazing! I do love a good curry, however I've never made one from scratch myself before because I'm lazy. I kind of just threw the recipe together and made it up as I went along but I'll try my best to remember everything! This would also make a lovely vegetarian curry without the prawns of course! I'll definitely be making more curries soon.

Ingredients

Prawns
4 tomatoes 
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
200g coconut cream
curry powder
ground cumin
frozen cauliflower 
spinach 
coriander 
2 sweet potatoes
1 onion 
chicken stock


Method

Defrost your prawns in plenty of time before hand. I used the raw king sized ones and used about half a bag. 

Cut up your sweet potato, onion and tomatoes and throw in the slow cooker. Add in your tin of tinned tomatoes and coconut milk along with two tablespoons of curry powder, a teaspoon of cumin and any other spices you wish. Chuck in a chicken stock cube and leave to cook away for an hour on high and then 3-4 hours on low until the sweet potato has started to soften. 

Throw in the cauliflower and any other vegetables you wish, along with half a bag of spinach and some coriander leaves. I added the prawns in raw for the last half hour until they were cooked through and served with rice and naan bread.

Next time I think I will use potatoes instead of sweet potatoes as I'm not a huge fan of them usually but it was still really nice.

  7. Ooh, that sounds lovely. Curries are just so good and anything that requires minimum effort from me (i.e. cooking in the slow cooker) is a winner too! Pinning it now.
