Thai-Style Red Curry

Makes 4 – 6 servings

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 tablespoon ginger, minced

1 tablespoon garlic, minced

1 tablespoon basil stems, minced

6 tablespoons red curry paste

800 ml coconut milk

1 tablespoon lime zest

4 large free-range boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch chunks  

2 tablespoons fish sauce

1 cup sugar snap peas

Handful of fresh cilantro leaves

Handful of fresh basil leaves

1 lime, cut into wedges

1 red chili, finely sliced

  1. Heat a large high-sided pan over medium heat, and pour in the vegetable. When hot, add the ginger, garlic, and basil stems, and cook, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes. Add the red curry paste and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute, then pour in the coconut milk, add the lime zest, and bring to a boil.
  2. Add the chicken and cook for about 12 – 15 minutes, until cooked through. Add the fish sauce, brown sugar, and sugar peas, and bring to a boil. When boiling, remove from the heat.
  3. Garnish the curry with fresh basil and cilantro, and serve with cooked jasmine rice, lime wedges, and fresh chilies (if you like it spicy). Delicious!
