Ingredients

  • 225g new potatoes, cut into chunks
  • 100g green beans, trimmed and halved
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 4 tsp thai green curry paste
  • 1 tin of coconut milk
  • 2 tsp fish sauce (trust me)
  • 450g diced chicken
  • 1tsp caster sugar
  • boiled rice

Method

  1. Fill a pan with boiling water  and cook the potato chunks for 5 mins.
  2. Add 100g of trimmed & halved green beans, and cook for another 3 mins (potatoes and beans should be tender but not too soft) Drain and put to one side.
  3. In a wok or large frying pan, heat 1 tbsp vegetable or sunflower oil until very hot, then drop in 1 chopped garlic clove and cook until golden, (this should take only a few seconds). Don’t let it go very dark or it will spoil the taste. 
  4. Spoon in 1 rounded tbsp Thai green curry paste and stir it around for a few seconds to begin to cook the spices and release all the flavours.
  5. Next, pour in the tin of coconut milk and let it boil.
  6. Stir in 2 tsp Thai fish sauce and 1 tsp caster sugar, then 450g bite-size chicken pieces. Turn the heat down to a simmer and cook, covered, for about 8 minutes until the chicken is cooked.
  7. Add the potatoes and beans and let them warm through.
  8. Serve immediately with boiled rice.
