3. Lower the heat, allow the pan to cool. Now add the paprika and turmeric and stir for 2 mins or till aromatic. 
4. Add the sausages and cook for a few minutes. 
5. Add the peas and cook for 45 seconds.  
6. Add the rice and stir for a minute. Then change to medium heat and pour in the chicken stock, mixing occasionally. 
7. Cook for further 20 mins until rice is almost cooked, the season with salt and pepper to taste. 
8. Arrange the prawns on TOP of the rice and add the chunky tomatoes.
