  • 2 shallots
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, freshly grated
  • 1 stick lemongrass, finely chopped
  • 2 green chillies, deseeded and chopped
  • 1 lime, zested
  • 1 small bunch coriander
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower oil
  • 1 small aubergine, cut into chunks
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and cut into dice
  • 8 Chestnut mushrooms, halved (or quartered if large)
  • 400ml coconut milk
  • 6 Okra, cut on the diagonal into 3 pieces
  • 8 baby corn, cut on the diagonal into 3 pieces
  • 150g bamboo shoots
  • 1 handful sugar snaps, cut in half on the diagonal
  • 2 handfuls beansprouts
  • 1 dash Soy sauce
  • 4 portions Jasmine rice


Step 1

Prepare the curry paste first. Place the shallots, garlic and ginger in a food-processor. Add the lemongrass, chillies, lime zest and coriander stalks (reserving the leaves) and whizz the mixture until finely chopped. You can also make this paste using a pestle and mortar if you prefer.

Step 2

Heat the sunflower oil in a large sauté pan. Add the curry paste and cook over a medium heat for 1 minute until the mixture smells fragrant. Add the aubergine, red pepper and mushrooms and cook for 1 minute stirring frequently until starting to become tender.

Step 3

Add the coconut milk to the pan with 150ml of water and bring to the boil. Add the okra, baby corn and bamboo shoots and continue to cook for a further 5 minutes or so until the veggies are tender. Finally add the sugar snaps and beansprouts to the pan and cook for another 30 seconds.

Step 4

Taste and add a dash of soy sauce or teaspoon of sugar if needed. Serve the curry in bowls, garnished with coriander leaves and with jasmine rice and lime wedges to squeeze over.
