  • 2 stalks fresh lemongrass, or 1 tsp of lazy lemongrass.
  • 2 shallots OR half a red onion
  • 1 green Birdseye chilli (add less or more depending on heat preference)
  • 1 bunch fresh coriander
  • 1 bunch fresh basil
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 thumb-sized piece of ginger OR galangal
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground white pepper
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 6 tbsp fish sauce
  • Squeeze of half a lime
  • Two tins of coconut milk


  1. Blend together all of the ingredients, except for the coconut milk, of which you only want to use half a tin, to create a fragrant curry paste.

  2. Put the remaining coconut milk to one side, and heat the paste in a pan, stirring well until hot, releasing the flavours.

  3. Add the rest of the coconut milk, and taste. At this point you may want to add more chilli. If the recipe is too spicy, another tin of coconut milk will cool it down.

  4. Put in chunks of pre-cooked chicken breast, or raw king prawns, and bring the sauce to boil until all is cooked through thoroughly.

  5. Serve with warm jasmine or basmati rice.
