Cooking Method

  • Bring the wok to a medium heat, add the oil, garlic, bird’s eye chilli and red curry paste and stir until you get an aroma.
    Add the chicken and stir for another 30 seconds before adding the galangal, galingale root and kaffir lime leaves.
  • Add in the string beans, bamboo shoots, Thai round and purple aubergine, fresh peppercorns and chillies.
    Season with the fish sauce and sugar and then add some chicken stock or water around the edge of the wok so it doesn’t cool and you gather in the nice ingredients around the edge.
  • Stir for a minute.
  • Do not overcook the vegetables, they should be crunchy.
  • Add the sweet basil and serve with Thai jasmine rice.

Sanook! [Enjoy!]
