“I saw Jamie Oliver make a version of this curry and knew I had to try it. I found this recipe on the net and adapted it to suit our taste. Check out Make Your Own Coconut Milk to make your own, fresh coconut milk. This is great served alongside a simple chicken or fish dish, or just served on its own, over jasmine rice, for a vegetarian dish (if you want it to be completely vegetarian, omit the fish sauce, but be prepared for a loss of flavour).”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Grind half the peanuts together with half the coconut and set aside.
