READY IN: 1hr 30mins




  • Place all sauce ingredients in a food processor. Process well to form a thick curry paste or sauce.
  • Do a taste test for salt and spice, adding more fish sauce if not salty enough. If not spicy enough, add more fresh chilli. If too sour, add a little more brown sugar.
  • Place sauce in a wok or large, deep-sided frying pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken pieces and stir well.
  • Continue stirring occasionally as you bring the curry to a boil. Then reduce heat to a bare simmer. Do not cover the wok/frying pan, as you want the sauce to reduce and become thicker.
  • Allow the curry to simmer (stirring occasionally) for up to one hour, or until meat is cooked and tender. The sauce will reduce, so that it is almost like a coating on the meat (plus there will be a little sauce in the wok/pan).
  • Garnish with a sprinkling of shredded coconut and fresh coriander (if desired). Serve hot with jasmine rice.
