  1. Mix all the ingredients except the chillies to a loose paste. Slit open the chillies, take the seeds out using a teaspoon, then fill the centres with the mix. Pack it in tightly and seal each one with a toothpick.
  2. Make the sauce: heat the oil and add the curry paste. Reduce the heat and fry the paste gently until fragrant, about 2 mins. Add the sugar and the fish sauce, then increase the heat and cook for 5 mins, stirring all the time. Add the coconut milk and bring to the boil, then add 100ml water and stir well.
  3. Drop in the stuffed chillies and reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and cook for 10 mins. Take from the heat and serve. Can be made up to a day ahead and gently reheated.

Absolutely fantastic. Made them for over Christmas and just pulled them out from the freezer. The quality of your pans could be the reason for the burning as well as the type of cooktop,Kamila.I will make this again as everyone loved them just wished I'd made more the first time.

this was very nice and tasty.I couldn't find green chillies so used romano peppers,halved.when I was making the sauce,it sais to add sugar + the fish sauce,then increase the heat and cook for 5 mins,well mine started to burn after few mins so I took it off the heat stirring all the time and it just turned black-burned completely!I didn't understand why that happened,but luckyly I had enough ingredients so made it again,this time I added the coconut milk after just few minutes to stop it from burning again.and it worked,enjoyed it very much!
