In a sautee pan, gently fry the garlic in a little oil until just transparent. Add the ginger and other dried spices and stir until the spices become fragrent (1-2 mins). Add the yoghurt and chutney and stir to comine. Season with salt, to taste. Add the prawns, cream and tomatoes and cook for 2 mins over medium heat. Add the spinach and cashews and stir for a further minute or so. Once the spinach has wilted, stir in the coriander and serve immediately.

Serve over steamed jasmine rice.

Serves 2 as a main course; 4 as a starter. Approximately calories per main course serving: 400, which includes a small (1/3 cup) serve of jasmine rice.

Absolutely delicious with red or white wine, or beer.
