“You can use either chicken or fish for this, or equally veggies like courgette, mushrooms etc as a pretty side dish. This makes a fantastic starter to an Asian themed dinner. You'll also need 4 individual bowls for steaming, or foil bowls, or banana leaf cups.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put coconut cream & rice flour into a small pot and bring to a boil. Set aside (don't allow this to get cold though).
  2. In a large bowl, put the egg, chicken (fish or veges, if using), red curry paste, soy & oyster sauces and palm sugar, and mix until well combined.
  3. Put the cabbage and then the basil leaves (5 per serving) into the bottom of each little bowl.
  4. Divide the chicken (fish or veges) mixture evenly between the 4 bowls (they will be quite full, but don't worry, as the cabbage & chicken cooks this will shrink down), top with the lime peel and steam for 15 minutes (or until chicken is cooked).
  5. Top with the thickened coconut cream recipe and steam for a further minute. Garnish with finely sliced red chili if desired.
