Ingredients

3 garlic cloves

1 x 4cm piece ginger, peeled, roughly chopped

1 large mild green chilli, roughly chopped

1 tbsp vegetable oil

2 tbsp curry powder

1 tbsp tomato paste

Steps
  • Step 1

    Use a mortar and pestle to pound the garlic, ginger, chilli and a pinch of salt to a very rough paste.

  • Step 2

    Heat the oil in a wok or saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic paste and cook, stirring, for half a minute. Then add the curry powder and tomato paste and stir for another half a minute. Add the tomato and cook for about 2 minutes to allow the tomato to soften. Then add the coconut cream, chicken stock and cinnamon stick. Simmer for about 8 minutes.
