Found this in one of my books called 'Hot Food'- this is my version.


  • (Optional- 400g chicken thigh into cubes)

  • 1 x jar yellow curry paste

  • 2 x tablespoons peanut oil

  • 2 x can coconut cream

  • 1 x cup vegetable stock

  • 150g snake beans (cut into 3cm strips)

  • 150g fresh baby corns

  • 100g cauliflower (into small florets)

  • 2 x small zucchini (1cm slices)

  • 1 x slender eggplant (1 cm slices)

  • 1 x small can water chestnuts (sliced)

  • 1 x small red capsicum (1cm slices)

  • 2 x small carrots (sliced diagonally)

  • 1 & 1/2 tablespoons fish sauce

  • 1 x knob fresh ginger finely chopped (approx 1 Tsp)

  • 1 teaspoon soft brown sugar

  • Garnish with fresh corriander leaves and finely chopped red chilli if that floats your boat.


  • 1.

    In a wok, large heavy based pot or pan- heat oil on medium heat. Add curry paste and ginger- cook for 2 minutes.

  • 2.

    (I then added chicken until cooked through-optional) Add one can of coconut cream. Cook for 10 minutes. Add vegetable stock and remaining coconut milk, bring back to boil and simmer until liquid thickens a little (10-15 minutes). Stir in fish sauce, sugar and vegetables and simmer until vegetables are tender but still Chrispy. Garnish if that tickles your taste buds- serves a small boat load.


Normally a very tasty vegetarian dish- but does work very well with chicken.
