Slowcooker Coconut, Fish and Prawn Curry

This is a recipe which originally took 25 mins, which isn't always helpful when you are busy putting kiddies to bed and stuff, so I have played around with it and adapted it for the slowcooker.   Still only takes about 3 hours, but worked well this weekend!

Ingredients
Vegetable oil
1 onion, halved and sliced
2 garlic cloves, chopped
10 garlic leaves (58p for loads so have frozen rest)
2 red chillies sliced
1 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp chilli powder (I used hot)
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tsp black mustard seeds
400ml can coconut milk (I used light)
1/2 tsp black, pepper
500g firm white fish - I used haddock
1/2 pepper, I used red cos I found it in the fridge!
8 large cooked shelled prawns
TO SERVE: rice or naan as you wish!

Method
Fry the onion, garlic, curry leaves and chillies in the oil, for around
3 minutes.  
Add in the rest of the ingredients, APART from the prawns, and 
bring to the boil, stirring
Add to the slow cooker and cook for around 3 hours.
Add the cooked prawns and cook for a further 15 minutes or so


Serve with a slotted spook onto a bed of rice, if using, then spoon over some of the creamy coconut sauce - delicious!

Enjoy!
