Going to cook this on the weekend for some friends. Quick question, what is lemon dressing? Also could I do this with Prawns?

Lemon dressing is the commercial product sold in bottles ivangough, usually containing lemon concentrate, sugar & a stack of chemical enhancers & preservatives.
Yes prawn madras is great as long as the prawns are not overcooked.

2 tbps blended onions...why can I never blend and cook onions properly when pureed, never turn out right and never seem to cook out properly, any tips, do they require boiling first?

Tried pureeing in the Kenwood but usually too little to puree.

2 tbps blended onions...

But the recipe doesn't say that - - it says "2 Tb - Onion (finely chopped)".  And there is no mention of the word "blended" in this thread before your usage in the immediately preceding message, nor does the collocation "tbps blended onions" occur else anywhere in the forum.

It was a matter of speech on blending onions with water.

I got it copied somewhere that......

 Finely chop onions and  green chilli and blend with a little water
 Finely chop ginger garlic and blend with a little water
 Blend tinned tomatoes

Anyway, away from being pedantic >:(, the question still remains valid about correct way of cooking out pureed\blended onions..

UPDATE:
ACTUALLY....it is listed by the OP on the very first post..get of your high horse :o >:(

Could it have something to do with the water content of the onions?

I mentioned cooking issues in this post:

http://www.curry-recipes.co.uk/curry/index.php/topic,14103.msg123034.html#msg123034

The water content of the blitzed onions and green pepper added more liquid (in one fell swoop, rather than released gradually) to my curry than I had anticipated.

It was touch and go for a while as to whether the curry was going to be boiled or fried! :)

Yes it could well be that, too much water. I wonder if a quantity of onions in a recipe where specified to be 'blended' should have the onions blanched beforehand, was a genuine question since the OP stated 'blended with a little water' or words to that affect and hence a reasonable question. Before i came here all my curries were 'traditional' and just used onions gently fried - no blending.
