Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat 1 tbsp vegetable oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat and fry 1 tbsp ginger and 1 tbsp garlic paste for 2 mins. Add 5-6 tbsp red curry paste, sizzle for a few secs, then pour in 800ml coconut milk.

  • STEP 2

    Bring to the boil, reduce to a simmer, stir a little and wait for the oil to rise to the surface.

  • STEP 3

    Add 8 skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into chunks, and kaffir lime leaves, and simmer for 12 mins or until the chicken is cooked through.

  • STEP 4

    Add 1 tbsp of the fish sauce and a pinch of brown sugar, then taste – if you like it a little saltier, add more fish sauce; if you like it sweeter, add a little more sugar.

  • STEP 5

    Bring to the boil, take off the heat and add ½ small pack Thai basil.

  • STEP 6

    Spoon the curry into four bowls and top with 1 red chilli, a thumb-sized piece of ginger and a few extra basil leaves. Serve with jasmine rice.
