Recipe for a night in

I love cooking.  I love eating too! I found this recipe, it's from Weightwatchers so you can have a glass of wine to go with it and not feel guilty!  You could have a pudding too!  If you speak fluent Points it's worth 3 and half points per serving.  Whatever!  Just enjoy it.  This recipe serves 2 so perfect for a romantic Valentines Day Dinner.
2 Garlic Cloves
15g piece fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
pinch of salt
1 small red onion finely diced
1/2 tspn each cumin seeds & ground coriander
1/4 tspn each ground tumeric, cayenne pepper and freshly ground black pepper.
6 tomatoes, skinned de-seeded and chopped
200g cooked, peeled king prawns
100g 0% greek yogurt
1/2 mild green chilli de-seeded and diced
1 tbspn chopped fresh coriander

75g (dry weight) basmati rice

 Pound the garlic, ginger & salt in a pestle and mortar.
Put rice on to boil according to packet instructions
Heat wok saute onion gently for 5 minutes
Add garlic and ginger paste and all the spices cook for a few seconds but don't burn the spices
Add tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes.  Turn down the heat to low and stir in prawns.  Heat through then add the yogurt and chopped coriander stirring until all heated through.
Serve with the Rice

The original recipe used a whole chilli. I'm wary of chilli because I don't like hot curries.  Using half a chilli still gave it quite a kick.  I would recommend starting with half and increasing the heat next time if you can cope with it!
