Cooking Instructions

Roast the coriander seeds and cumin seeds in a dry pan on medium heat for a couple of minutes. Move the spices around in the pan constantly to roast while avoiding burning.

Bled the warm spices immediately with the shrimp paste for a few seconds in the blender. Then add the chilies, shallots, galangal, garlic, lime leaves and coriander leaves. Blend into a smooth paste.

Add the oil to your medium-hot wok. Add the curry paste and mix until the complex aromas hit your nose. Add the coconut cream and coconut milk. Add the water. Stir well.

Add the chicken pieces and simmer uncovered for 15 minutes, along with the lime leaves.

Add the fish sauce, stir, and serve garnished with some spring onions along with a bowl of white rice.
