  1. Pre-heat the grill to high. In a medium bowl, mix together the curry powder, 1 tbsp sunflower oil, the yogurt and the lime zest. Stir in the defrosted king prawns, then season with black pepper and set aside.
  2. Arrange the onion and peppers on a baking tray lined with foil. Toss with the remaining 1 tbsp oil and season. Grill, turning frequently, for 7-8 mins, until tender and starting to char.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the tomato, cucumber, sugar or agave and lime juice in a bowl. Season and set aside for 5 minutes, then drain any excess juice and add the yogurt, garlic and mint.
  4. Skewer the prawns onto 3 or 4 metal skewers and lay on the baking tray on top of the veg. Grill for 2 mins then turn and cook for a further 1-2 mins, until golden.
  5. Meanwhile, warm the naan bread according to pack instructions. Remove the prawns from the skewers and pile onto the naan with the vegetables and some of the raita.

Tip: For a veggie twist, try swapping the prawns for chunks of paneer.
