Yum yum yum
Serves: 2
What you need:
  • 1 Portion Red curry paste (see recipe here)
  • 200 ml Coconut milk
  • 2 pieces Chicken thigh, skinless & boneless, sliced thinly
  • 3 cups Vegetables, e.g. cauliflower, beans, pumpkin, capsicum, bamboo shoots, carrots
  • 2 Tbsp Oil
  • 100 ml Water
  • 1 Tbsp Fish sauce
  • 3-5 Kaffir lime leaves, rip off the leafy bits and discard the stalk

Note: Only use 50g if you’re using store-bought curry paste, and taste before adding any fish sauce as they tend to be quite salty already.

How to put this together:
  1. Heat 1 Tbsp oil in a pan, add vegetables and pan fry briefly. Try to get sear marks on the vegetables. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Lower heat to medium, heat 1 Tbsp oil in the same pan. Add curry paste. Fry until fragrant.
  3. Add chicken. Stir-fry to coat well with curry paste.
  4. Add coconut milk. Bring to boil.
  5. Add water + fish sauce. Bring to boil.
  6. Add vegetables.
  7. Taste & season
  8. When vegetables are cooked, add kaffir lime leaves.
  9. Serve with steamed rice.
