Hints and Tips

This is a mild curry but if you like it hotter add an extra chilli to the paste.

To prepare the paste place all ingredients (except oil) in a food processor and blend.  Add the oil and blend until paste like consistency.

Heat a wok on the stove at a medium-high heat.  Add the peanut oil and chicken and cook until chicken is brown (you may need to do this in batches)

Once chicken is brown, add the curry paste and coat chicken well and cook for a further 2 minutes on medium-high heat.

Add the coconut milk, fish sauce and lime juice.

Simmer on a low heat for about 10 minutes.

Add the mushrooms, snow peas and capsicum and simmer again for about 2 minutes.
