The list of ingredients may be long- but don't let this daunt you..
You mostly like to have all the ingredients in your kitchen.

The simplicity of this classic curry makes it perfect anytime...


4 large chicken breasts, cut into chunks
400ml coconut milk
1tbsp palm sugar
2 1/2 tbsp fish sauce
3-4 spring onions, finely chopped
2tbsp cooking oil
Curry paste:
3 garlic cloves, chopped
3 large shallots, chopped
6 mild red chilies, deseeded and chopped
5cm piece of ginger
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4tsp ground turmeric
3-4 tbsp water
Juice of 2 lime


Put the chicken pieces into a large bowl with a little salt and pepper and spoon over a few tbsp coconut milk. Cover with cling film and chill until ready to cook.

To make the curry paste; put all the ingredients into a food processor and whiz to a smooth paste. Add a little water to get fine, smooth ground paste.

Heat the oil in a deep pan or wok. Add the curry paste and stir fry for about 2-3minutes over low heat, just until the paste smells fragrant. Pour in the coconut milk and water and lime, then stir in the palm sugar and fish sauce. Bring the liquid to a simmer, stirring to dissolve the sugar.
Serve immediately with coconut rice.
