Recipe's preparation

  1. Place nuts in the TM bowl and mill for 5 sec / speed 9. Set aside

  2. Chop spring onions, chili, garlic, lemon grass and kaffir lime leaves 10 sec / speed 7

  3. Add oil and saute 2 min / varoma temp / speed softGentle stir setting"Gentle stir setting"

  4. Add coconut milk. Cook 4 min / varoma temp / speed 1

  5. Slowly blend 20 sec / speed 9 for a smoother sauce. (You must remember to turn the dial slowly). Once you get to speed 9 then count down 20 seconds, this will ensure a smooth sauce)

  6. Add sliced chicken pieces, cook 8 min / varoma temp / reverse / speed softGentle stir setting"Gentle stir setting"

  7. Add fish sauce, fresh basil, sugar and ground nuts (less nuts if you want a thinner sauce).
    Add vegetables at this stage for a crisper texture. Stir around a little with your spatula so the vegetables are covered in sauce.

    Cook 2 mins / varoma temp / reverse / speed softGentle stir setting"Gentle stir setting"

    Garnish with Coriander or slices of chilli.


You can add any type of vegetable you like. I like to add them in the last 2 minutes of cooking time as it keeps the vegetables crisp and they are not overcooked. I keep the seeds from the green chillis in the sauce as they are not as hot as what you would think. You can also change chicken to seafood. Happy cooking!

    It tingles and zings!

    Fantastic favour and so easy to prepare - very popular taste, only used 3 tbs of fish sauce which was enough.

    Loved it and looking forward to the leftovers.

    May try with chicken thigh as the breast meat was on the edge of dry.

    Smile very delicious curry 10/10

    I used 2 TBS of Fish Sauce and used the 70g of ground Cashews, sauce turned out perfect.

    This curry reminds me of a traditional Thai curry from Thailand.

    Highly recommend you add 4 green chilli's and extra sweet basil.

    Cooked this last night and it is really really good. I only had 3 chillies but will definately try 4 next time and only did the 2 tablespoons of fish sauce. So easy and tasty.
    There's only hubby and me so we're having leftovers for dinner again tonight Smile
