3. stir through the watered-down tomato paste and fry for around 30 seconds to remove the bitterness

4. sprinkle in the cumin powder, garam masala, chilli powder, salt, paprika, turmeric, black pepper, sugar and coriander and stir in well. It's fine to add a little water to keep things moving. fry gently for around 2-3 minutes.

6. add the chopped green chillies along with the fresh chopped coriander and mix well

7. in with the prawns, you can of course use any type of meat, veg or cheese and coat to ensure everything is well covered in the sauce
