Mise en place

Method

  1. Add the oil to a heavy frying pan or wok, brown the meat quickly over a high heat, remove and reserve.
  2. Fry the onions, garlic and grated ginger until the onions are sort, about 8 minutes.
  3. Add the ground spices and fry for a minute more.
  4. Stir in the tomatoes, vinegar and julienned ginger and mix well.
  5. Cover and cook until the meat is tender, about 30 to 40 minutes. If the meat is still tough, add ½ a cup of boiling water and continue cooking for 20 minutes.
  6. Remove the cover, add the coconut block, green chilli mix well and cook until the coconut is dissolved.

Peeling ginger

There is no need to peel ginger. As a result of attending a Thai cookery demo, we have learnt that peeling ginger is unnecessary unless for aesthetic purposes as the skin is high in fibre and full of flavour. However, do remove any bits that have become tough or woody.
