Thai Green Chicken Curry with Basil

Basil, a staple in Indian, Italian and Thai cooking, has long been considered the ‘king of herbs’. In the warmer months basil is in abundance and at its best.

Serves 4

2 tsp vegetable oil

4 eschallots, finely sliced

400g can coconut milk

¼ cup green curry paste

1kg chicken thigh fillets, cut
 into 3cm cubes

6 kaffir lime leaves,
 finely shredded

227g can sliced water
 chestnuts, drained

1 cup Thai pea eggplants
 (optional), if available

150g snow peas, trimmed

2 tbsp fish sauce

2 tbsp lime juice

1 tbsp grated palm sugar or
 brown sugar

1 cup Thai basil leaves

Steamed jasmine rice, to serve

1 Heat a wok over a high heat. When hot add oil and swirl around wok. Add eschallots and stir fry for 1 minute or until soft. Add 1/3 of coconut milk and curry paste, and stir fry for 1 minute.

2 Add chicken thigh, remaining coconut milk and 1/3 cup water. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 8 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
