This dish can be served with rice, noodles or baguettes. Vietnamese children can be seen early in the morning mopping up their curries with the French-style small baguettes available at every street corner.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
vegetable oil, for frying
5 red asian shallots, diced
3 garlic cloves, chopped
2 lemongrass stems, chopped, white part only
4cm knob of galangal, peeled and chopped
1/2 long red chilli, seeded and chopped
1 tablespoon indian curry powder
1kg free-range chicken thigh fillets, cut into 4 pieces each
400ml coconut milk
2 tablespoons fish sauce
1 teaspoon caster sugar
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 cups vegetables cut into bite-sized chunks
3 tomatoes, seeds and skin removed and cut into 8 pieces each
1 handful thai basil leaves, roughly chopped, to serve
Lime, chilli and salt, to serve

Method

  1. Heat a small amount of oil in a saucepan over medium heat and fry the shallots, garlic, lemongrass, galangal and chilli for 1–2 minutes. Add the curry powder and cook, stirring, for 1 minute, or until fragrant. Take care as spices can burn easily and become bitter. Add the chicken and stir to coat it in the spices. Cook for 3–4 minutes, or until the chicken has coloured.
  2. Add the coconut milk, fish sauce, sugar and pepper and stir. Add the vegetables and top up with water until they are just covered. Simmer for 10–12 minutes, or until the chicken and vegetables are cooked through. Add the tomatoes and cook for 1–2 minutes, or until they have softened.
  3. Serve in a deep bowl scattered with the basil leaves and accompanied by noodles, rice or a crispy baguette. Dip into the lime, chilli and salt prior to eating.
