Ingredients

  • 2 long green chillies
  • 2 small red chillies

  • 4 makrut (kaffir lime) leaves
  • 2.5 cm (1 inch) piece fresh ginger, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 3 spring onions (scallions), finely sliced
  • 1 teaspoon soft brown sugar
  • 250 ml (9 fl oz/1 cup) coconut milk

  • 125 ml (4 fl oz/1/2 cup) coconut cream

4. Stir through the chopped green and red chillies, fish sauce, salt and lime juice to taste and serve immediately.
