“This curry is a complete joy. As well as being seriously tasty, it’s good for you, too. Prawns are packed with vitamin B12, which is what keeps metabolic functions in your body going, so that your cells can use the energy from the food you eat. Plus, spinach is super-high in vitamin K, which keeps our bones healthy. Coming in at under half an hour, this is a quick and easy weeknight supper that ticks all the boxes and promises big on flavour. Enjoy! ” Jamie Oliver
