2 tbsp. fish sauce
1 tbsp. lime juice
2 tsp. coconut sugar
Sliced red chili & Thai basil, to garnish


Curry Paste-

120g fresh galangal, peeled, very finely chopped

200g long green chilies, seeds removed, finely chopped

250g red onion, finely chopped

100g lemongrass, tough outer removed, very finely chopped

300g garlic, finely chopped

20g coriander root, washed, finely chopped

4 kaffir lime skins, finely zested (ensure no pith remains)

10g wild green chilies

120g shrimp paste, roasted in foil until fragrant and dry

10g white peppercorns, roasted, ground

10g coriander seeds, roasted, ground

All either blended or chopped very finely.


  • Instructions:
  • Heat oil in a wok or deep fry pan over high heat.
Add paste to wok and stir briefly. Add onion and chicken and stir-fry, tossing to ensure paste doesn’t burn, for 2-3 minutes until seared, and then remove from heat, into a bowl. Add coconut milk to wok, vegetables, stock, lime leaves and bring to the boil. Simmer on low for 20 minutes. Return chicken to the pan, and simmer for a further 5 minutes until it’s cooked and tender.
  • Stir in fish sauce, limejuice and sugar and heat through for a further minute.

Garnish with red chili, extra lime leaves and Thai basil. Serve with a small amount of cooked brown rice or quinoa if lunch, and without if this is dinner.


Serves 4-6
