  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • 2-3 tablespoons desired curry paste (see above recipes)
  • 2-3 teaspoons fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup vegetables cut into 1-inch pieces or cubes such as potatoes, squash, mushrooms, or eggplant
  • 1/2 of a medium yellow onion cut into slices
  • meat cut into 1/2 inch thick slices optional
  • 1- inch piece of lemongrass
  • fresh thai basil can substitute fresh italian basil
  • 1 kaffir lime leaf
  • 4 cups cooked jasmine rice for serving


  1. Smmer the meat in boiling water until nearly cooked through, remove from water and set aside. In a medium-sized pot, bring the coconut milk and curry paste to a simmer over medium low heat.

  2. Allow to simmer for 5 minutes, stirring every minute. Add the fish sauce, brown sugar, water, vegetables, and onion and simmer until the vegetables are nearly done, (length of time depends on type of vegetable, i.e. potatoes take longer to cook through than mushrooms).

  3. Add the meat, lemongrass, basil and kaffir lime leaf and simmer for about 5 minutes or until the meat is completely cooked through. Remove from heat and serve immediately alongside the cooked jasmine rice.
