I just love a good curry. The secret, in my opinion, is the best curry paste you can find so if you have a local Asian grocer that stocks a homemade paste buy it! This recipe is extremely flexible in terms of the veggies or meat you add. Other yummy ingredients would be red peppers, mushrooms, a bit of eggplant or beef instead of chicken.

Directions

  1. Heat a large frying pan or wok and add the cooking oil, curry paste and three tablespoons of coconut milk.
  2. Stir-fry for a couple minutes, then add the garlic, chilli and shallots.
  3. Fry another 2-3 minutes then add the meat and cook until it is coloured on all sides.
  4. Add the bruised lemon grass to the pan along with the beans, fish sauce and the rest of the coconut milk.
  5. Lower the heat and simmer gently for 25 minutes or until the meat is tender.
  6. Add a squeeze of lime juice at the end.
  7. While the curry is simmering, wash the rice and place it in a pot with three times as much water (about 750ml).
  8. Boil, then take the heat down to low, cover and leave to cook for 10 minutes.
  9. Remove the pan from the heat and leave the rice without taking off the lid for another 10 minutes.
  10. Just before serving, stir in the bamboo shoots, a bit of coriander and pineapple.
  11. Heat through and serve over rice, garnished with another sprinkle of coriander.

Thank you for excellent recipe! One remark though: 1 chile is really too much, if you are not seasoned enough for really spicy food, you'd better not put any, as the paste is enough hot itself. I had to add more coconut milk to my plate in the end to make it milder. Other, it is really delicious.
