Recipe Notes:

  • Store coconut milk in the fridge for a few hours before use. This will allow the coconut milk to solidify and separate from the coconut water.
  • You can thicken your curry by adding 1-2 tbsp of cornstarch or coconut cream.
  • To make the cauliflower rice pictured above, heat oil in a pan, add grated cauliflower, turmeric, mixed herbs and salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 5-8 mins on medium heat.
  • You can use chicken thighs, legs  or other cuts of meat for this recipe.
