Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan or flameproof casserole. Add the spring onions and coriander stalks and cook for 1 min. Add the pork slices and cook for 5 mins until starting to brown.
  2. Stir in the curry paste and peanut butter. After 30 secs, add the sugar, soy and coconut milk, plus ½ can of water. Mix well, put a lid on and leave to simmer for 15 mins, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove the lid, add the baby corn and increase the heat. Bubble for 3 mins until the corn is cooked and the sauce has thickened a little. Stir in the lime juice and check the seasoning. Can now be frozen for up to 2 months. To cook from frozen: thoroughly defrost, then heat in a pan on the hob until curry is hot all the way through. Serve scattered with the coriander leaves and rice.

Delicious but agree that it is very rich. Not good for the waistline!

Actually very good for the waistline even better if you swap chicken for the pork

This was sooooooo tasty! Was really enjoyed by everyone. I added a little fish sauce at the end too. I used pork belly instead and cut it into cubes which was very economical being such a cheap piece of meat, I just cut the fat off! YUM! Making again tonight, I'm going to try with chicken thighs this time as I think this recipe would be great with any meat.

This is excellent. I added an extra half lime, 2 sticks of lemongrass, and a small chilli (only because I had them). It tastes great and very easy to make. The sauce was a bit watery after adding only half a can of water which I was surprised at given other comments - but delicious. very impressive and will make again. Finally - couldnt get enough mini sweetcorns so added some mange tout. Worked well

Gorgeous!!! agree with previous post about it being rich, you really don't need a lot. added fish sauce and not as much sugar as recipe advised. will definitely be making again. it really does taste as good as something you would be served in a Thai restaurant. Will make it will chicken next time, I think I will prefer a chicken version. Highly recommend you try this recipe at least once! Easy peasy :D

Delicious but very rich. I added a full, not half, can of water, two birds eye chillies and a good glug of fish sauce which definitely cut through and stopped it from being too cloying. Very moreish!

Really good and super easy. I added fresh ginger with the onions which was also great.

Lovely flavours in this meal. I forgot the lime juice at the end (again) - derrr. Served with ordinary rice and lots of fresh coriander to sprinkle on top. Delicious.

Delicious!!! Even the kids ate it (who are very fussy eaters!) so it must be good. Very easy to make. Big thumbs up from me.

This was one of the tastiest curries I've ever eaten (and the best I've ever cooked!) I used full fat cocunut milk as its all I had and probably a bit more peanut butter than suggested(!) Used tilda jasmine rice, but I couldnt even taste the jasmine so wouldnt bother next time. This is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!

This was yet another delicious recipe. Made it for dinner and froze the leftovers for lunches in the week. I will definitely make it again.

Light coconut milk is the key as regular coconut milk would have made it too sweet.
