I was given some Very Lazy Ginger to sample recently and decided to try it out in this Prawn and Vegetable Curry. I've only ever used fresh ginger in curries so was very interested to see how it would compare. The result - well you couldn't taste the difference and a definite plus point of the lazy variety is that the jar can be kept in the fridge for 3 months - no more mouldy ginger for me!
This is a very easy curry to pull together, perfect for a Friday night.
