Serving suggestions

Serve garnished with coriander leaves, almond flakes and raw onion rings


I have deliberately kept this recipe very simple. If you use a good quality curry paste you will be surprised how good the results are without adding any other spices. However, if you have them, adding a few whole spices adds another dimension without much extra effort. Try adding the following whole spices when you fry the onions:

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.
