“Fresh prawns cooked with garam masala spices, green beans, leeks, spinach and mushrooms. Finished with tomato and cream, this easy and delicious meal is über-umami.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons garam masala
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 leek, finely sliced
  • 9 mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 red pepper, small, diced
  • 6 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 200 g green beans, topped and tailed
  • 600 g prawns, large, fresh, preferably de-veined and shelled (in the pictures here the shell was still on, fabulous for flavour but takes time to peel)
  • 100 g fresh spinach, chopped
  • 200 g tomatoes, peeled & chopped, canned is perfect and a half a can is about right
  • 90 ml cream


  1. Over medium heat sauté oil, masala, onion, leek, mushrooms, red pepper, garlic and beans. Stir until the onions are glassy.
  2. Add prawns and stir for about five minutes, just until the prawns curl.
  3. Add spinach and allow to wilt for a minute or two while stirring.
  4. Add tomatoes and stir until heated.
  5. Stir in cream for a minute.
  6. Serve on rice. In my pictures you'll see brown basmati.
