For a delicious taste of Thailand try Antony Worrall Thompson's fragrant curry, flavoured with authentic Thai herbs


1. Peel the tough outer coating from the lemon grass stalk. Finely chop the white, bulbous part of each stalk, discarding the rest. In a casserole dish fry the green curry paste in vegetable oil over a high heat for 3 minutes. Add garlic, lemon grass, lime leaves and half the coconut milk and cook, stirring often, until the sauce starts to split, about 5 minutes.

2. Add in fresh coriander, chicken and chilli and simmer for 15 minutes. Add remaining coconut milk and cook for a further 3 minutes. Add prawns and pea aubergines and cook for further 2 minutes or until the prawns have turned a pink colour.

3. Just before serving fold in the basil leaves, fish sauce and lime juice. Garnish with coriander sprigs and serve with rice.

I made this for 13 people, it was easy but the thai pea aubergines needed alot longer than 2 minutes to cook (they tasted very bitter and were still very hard after 2 minutes). Also, I thought it needed aubergine or some other veg so I added aubergine and green pepper which made it much nicer (fried those separately then added). It was very easy and for that many people still didn't take that long just trebled the ingredients. Also I prefer lemongrass to be cut as little stalks rather than round bits as described in this recipe. Everyone enjoyed I got a great curry paste from an authentic thai shop. Yummy.
