“We are suckers for a good old curry, they are just so delicious! Ginger, garlic, coconut, coriander…there’s just no better combo! Use salt-reduced stock though so you can control the saltiness. Why not even try making your own red curry paste, it’s so easy and you know what’s gone into it! You can even have a crack at some cauliflower rice or cauliflower purée. Yummy!”
600g chicken breast fillets
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp freshly chopped ginger
1 tbsp tomato puree
100ml vegetable stock (salt-reduced)
Juice of half a lemon
2 tbsp sesame oil
100ml coconut milk (unsweetened)
2 tbsp red curry paste
2 stalks Thai basil and coriander
1. Cut chicken breast into small strips. Heat sesame oil in a wok or frying pan, and fry chicken, garlic and ginger for 3-4 minutes.
2. Stir in coconut milk, tomato puree, curry paste and vegetable stock and simmer for a further 4-5 minutes.
3. Drop whole tomatoes into boiling water for a few seconds, refresh in cold water, then skin, quarter, de-seed and cut into wedges.
4. Add tomatoes to the chicken curry a few minutes before serving.
5. Stir Thai basil and coriander into curry and season with lemon juice, salt and pepper.
