Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Equipment: A large frying pan, which works much better than a wok!
  2. Heat the oil in the frying pan over medium heat.
  3. Add the curry base and simmer for 2 minutes, so that it is dissolved and foaming.
  4. Stir in the can of the coconut milk. Cook over medium heat for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Add the sliced chicken. Simmer for 4 minutes.
  6. Stir in the sugar, fish sauce and bell pepper. Simmer until the chicken is cooked, about 3 minutes more.
  7. Add the chopped basil. Season to taste with more sugar or seasoning sauce as desired.
  8. Serve over rice.

This recipe came out pretty good, but it wasn't what I had expected. I was expecting a thinner gravy, but it was still very tasty. I added extra basil and red curry paste for more of a kick.
