If your children aren’t familiar with spicy food this is an ideal introduction, as it gives a mild to medium strength curry.

  1. Heat the oil in a large wok or frying pan and then gently sauté the onion for about 5 minutes until soft but not coloured.
  2. Add the curry paste, tomato purée, potatoes, chicken and red pepper to the onion, stirring the mixture for a couple of minutes then adding in the fish sauce, coconut milk and 100ml water.
  3. Bring the mixture to a gentle simmer and cook uncovered for 15 minutes before adding the baby corn and green beans to the curry.
  4. Continue cooking for 5-8 minutes until the vegetables are just tender, add the lime juice, garnish with the coriander and serve.
