Ingredients

3 birdseye chillies, roughly chopped

600ml (20 fl oz) coconut milk

1 stalk lemongrass, sliced

5cm (2 inches) piece galangal, sliced

3 makrut lime leaves, stems removed

300g (10.6 oz) chicken thigh, cut into bite-sized pieces

100g (3.5 oz) mushrooms

3 tbsp lime juice

2½ tbsp fish sauce

2 tsp white sugar

3 stalks coriander, leaves and stems roughly chopped

Steps
Step 1

Use a mortar and pestle to lightly bruise the chillies. Set aside for later.

Step 2

Place coconut milk, 1/2 cup water, lemongrass, galangal and makrut lime leaves in a saucepan over high heat. Bring to the boil. Then add the chicken and mushrooms. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 4-5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove from heat.

LOVE!

Our family favourite is the Green Thai Currry – super easy to prepare and can add as much extra goodness as you like!

I also love the Miso & Sesame dressing! x
