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.

I really enjoyed this recipe, very easy and quick to make. However I'd like the sauce a little thicker, I'm not sure if the half can of water is needed

O..M...G... Just had this for dinner tonight and it was absolutely delicious! Because my hubby doesn't like spicy food, I halved the amount of Thai red paste (Sainsbury's) but he said I could've added more... I also added red pepper, green beans and 1tbsp fish sauce. I used half fat coconut milk but didn't add extra water like others suggested, I also omitted the sugar. If you're new to making curries (like me) I would thoroughly recommend this dish!

This is lovely. I used pork steaks cut into small pieces and had green rather than red Thai curry sauce but the result was delicious.

Third time I've cooked this now, a firm favourite in our house. I use the "my thai curry" pastes that others here recommend. This time I decided to try making it with their Panang paste as that already has peanuts in it. Much as I loved it with red curry, the Panang version was voted even better with my crowd! I never use light coconut milk as it turns out too watery and has too many additives. Great meal as the nights get colder.

Brilliant and simple recipe. Made this last night and it worked perfectly. Had some extra time before serving so made some quick chapati which went with it very well.

This is a brilliant recipe, restaurant standard! I tweeted it slightly, halfed the sugar, omitted most of the water & used veggies instead of pork. Still first class. I am quite fussy with my curries & recipes but this is seriously good. Don't doubt trying it, you won't be disappointed!

Very good. I had a bit of root ginger in the cupboard, so I added that. I also replaced the baby corn with fine green beans.

Cooked this and it was really thin and regretted adding the extra water. I checked out the coconut milk section on the mythaicurry website as someone else suggested and it became clear. The “light” coconut milk I was using was 75% water anyway! Surprised to find out even with the regular coconut milk there can be big variations in water content, some brands have twice as much water content as another. A lesson learnt as it took quite a bit of time to reduce it! Used a Thai Taste curry paste and it was so-so, will cook it again with regular coconut milk and a better paste.

Fantastic curry and dead easy to make! We used chicken instead of pork and added a few more veggies (pepper and spinach). Didn't add the sugar - like many people have said the curry was sweet enough for us! I also don't think you need to add as much water - I found it took ages to thicken so the coconut milk was enough liquid.
