Chef's notes

Needs garlic! Suggest when sautéing leeks and onion use Speed 1 with MC off after chopping, for longer than 7 minutes if necessary. Suggest a blast at Speed 9 or 10 before adding prawns, to improve silkiness. I used low-fat yogurt instead of the cream and this should be slaked with ½ teaspoon of cornflour and 1 teaspoon of water.
