The recipe serves two so is perfect for a cosy Sunday night in, but budding chefs can amend the quantities of ingredients depending on the size of their party.
The food media brand stressed the downright easiness and speediness of the recipe, stating: “Curry needn’t be a chore-like undertaking – here’s a curry you can prepare in minutes.”
What’s more, while curry can be a decadent meal choice and often calorific in restaurants due to their high salt, saturated fat and sugar content, this recipe is low salt and just 195 calories per serving.

Start by heating the oil in a pan, then add onion and fry until they colour. Crush the garlic into the pan, add ginger and chilli and cook briefly. Add tomatoes and a quarter of a can of water and bring to the boil. Simmer for two minutes, add prawns or chicken and gujarati masala. For prawns, cover and cook for two to three minutes and for chicken, cover and cook for five to six minutes.
Reduce the heat to a simmer, then stir in the yoghurt a tablespoonful at time. Sprinkle over the coriander. BBC Good Food recommends serving with warm garlic and coriander naans and a crisp salad of cucumber, shredded lettuce, sliced red onion and wedges of lemon. However, the dish can also be served with rice or roti.
Curry lovers went wild for the recipe and were full of praise for the dish, however many of them found that adding water made their curry too watery.
BBC Good Food fan ‘rcwalker29’ said it was an “excellent way to start” making curry for those who aren’t experienced.
Foodie ‘ciarannasaurus’ sang the recipe’s praises: “It tastes amazing with chickpeas instead of chicken also. This is one of my favourite dishes, and I love cooking it for friends, who are always impressed. Delicious and so simple!”
Fellow foodie ‘arniie’ called it a ‘fantastic tasting meal, quick, tasty and low calorie’.
