    Add the veg

    Put the tomatoes in and bring it to a gentle boil and then simmer for 4-5 mins over a medium heat.

Matthew - Jun 16, 2019

Swapped the prawns for chicken. Amazing taste. I'm a biiig spice fan but this wasn't that hot as some red thai's are. Easy prep. Easy cook. Lovely.

This was my first simply cook recipe I've tried was really impressed with the kit I struggle to find dishes to cook for my daughter and myself as she doesn't like things too spicy and I have a gluten and wheat intolerance this recipe was perfect and quick to make only down side was by using whole tin of coconut milk made dish very liquidy so i will use less next time that said I'm really looking forward to our next simply cook meal and have already been back online to choose our next box with my daughter which is a great conversation everytime giving her a chance to make choices about what we can try together as she loves helping prepare meals too the recipe cards are easy to follow so would have no problems letting her cook a meal for us when she wants too

Unfortunately the dog ate the spices

Gill - Jun 04, 2019

Quite tasty but there was so much coconut milk it really diluted the flavour.

Daniel - Jun 03, 2019

Wow ????

Ricky - Jun 03, 2019

Gemma - Jun 03, 2019

Rose - Jun 02, 2019

Lovely tasting dish

Natalie - Jun 01, 2019

Really tasty - intense flavours

Florent - Jun 01, 2019

Delicious, but the proportion are not correct. Need more rice, and I would put less coconut milk.

Elizabeth - May 31, 2019

Nice, not too spicy. I will order this one again

Ruth - May 31, 2019

Not that keen

Jamie - May 31, 2019

This was good but it’s not the best Thai red curry I’ve made at home, and with so many other great choices it’s unlikely I’ll order this again. I can stick with my usual paste recipe for this dish and it will save room in my box for the REALLY good Simply dishes.

Fairly bland dish. No idea why so few ingredients. If I make it again I'd put mange tout and baby corn in. But that's just me.

Tracy - May 30, 2019


Sophie - May 30, 2019


Sharon - May 30, 2019

Really enjoyed it but next time would spoon the prawns and sauce over the pasta instead of adding it to the pan. Yum.

Sandy - May 30, 2019

Didn’t find this had much flavour, could of been slightly spicier.
