Curry prawns with vegetables and rice is a quick and satisfying meal combining tasty curry prawns with a colourful assortment of vegetables. You can save a bit of time by buying cleaned prawns. Our choice would be to purchase the larger ocean prawns and clean at home.

  • 2 cups jasmine rice – rinsed
  • 1 large onion – peeled, rinsed, halved and cut into large dices
  • 1 large clove garlic – peeled, rinsed, crushed
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 red capsicums – halved, deseeded, rinsed, flesh inside trimmed, sliced in thin strips
  • 2 large carrots – peeled, rinsed, top cut, halved, sliced in thin strips
