  • Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan.
  • Add the green curry paste and sugar and cook over a fairly high heat for about a minute, stirring with the lemongrass, if using.
  • Reduce the heat slightly and stir in the chicken pieces and lime leaves or zest until coated in the paste.
  • Add the coconut milk, fish sauce or soy sauce and bring to a simmer, cooking for 25-30 minutes until thickened slightly.
  • Stir in the coriander and lime juice.
  • Check for seasoning, adding more fish sauce or soy sauce if needed.
  • The curry is now best left to sit for a few minutes so the sauce becomes creamier.
  • You will also taste the true flavours of the curry paste ingredients when it's slightly cooler.
  • Serve with lots of fragrant Thai jasmine rice.
