Method

 
Put the onion, garlic, ginger, chilli and coriander stems into a food processor and blend until there is a smooth paste.

Heat the oil over medium heat and fry the paste for three minutes or until it starts to turn golden. Add the spices and fry until fragrant. Add the coconut milk a little at a time.

Add the potatoes, chickpeas and tomatoes and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are cooked. Stir every few minutes to prevent the food burning. Add the snow peas, soy sauce and tamarind paste to taste. Simmer for three minutes, then stir the coriander through.

Mix the fresh coconut shavings into the hot jasmine rice and serve with the curry.

Tip of the day

 
Softening pears
Some pears come to market rock hard, but if left at room temperature they will soften. Tucking them into a sealed paper bag with a banana speeds the process.
