Large Frying Pan


Cook the Rice

Pour the water for the rice (see pantry for amount) into a medium saucepan with a tight-fitting lid.

Stir in the rice and 1/4 tsp salt and bring to the boil. Once boiling, turn the heat down to medium and cover with the lid.

Leave to cook for 10 mins, then remove the pan from the heat (still covered) and leave to the side for another 10 mins or until ready to serve (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam).

Get Prepped

Meanwhile, trim the carrot, then halve lengthways (no need to peel). Thinly slice widthways into pieces about 1cm thick.

Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Zest and halve the lime.


Fry the Veg

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on high heat.

Once hot, add the carrot and stir-fry until tender, 4-5 mins.

Lower the heat to medium. Stir in the garlic, Thai style spice blend (add less if you'd prefer things milder) and yellow Thai style paste. Stir-fry for 1 min until fragrant.


Simmer the Sauce

Next, pour the coconut milk into the pan. Stir in the soy sauce, sugar and the water for the sauce (see pantry for both amounts).

Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat slightly. Simmer until thickened, 4-5 mins.

Meanwhile, drain the prawns. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw prawns. They're cooked when pink on the outside and opaque in the middle. 

Add the Prawns

Once the sauce has thickened, stir in the prawns. Cook for 5-6 mins. 

Squeeze in some lime juice. Add a splash of water if it's a little too thick.

Taste and season with salt, pepper and more lime juice if needed. 

When the rice is cooked, fluff it up with a fork and stir through the lime zest. Cut any remaining lime into wedges.


Share the zesty rice between your serving bowls.

Spoon over the Thai style king prawn curry. Serve with any remaining lime wedges to finish.
