Time 10 mins


  • 400
    1 can coconut milk
  • 30
    red curry paste
  • 15
    brown sugar
  • 800

    fish sauce
  • salt to taste
  • 1 handful of fresh coriander


15 mins
The curry paste and sugar are cooked together before the meat is added.
The sugar allows the mixture to be cooked at a higher temperature, thus helping to extract the flavours more effectively without spoiling the colour.
Pour the creamy topping of the coconut milk into a hot wok or pan. Stirring continuously, simmer gently until it begins to separate.
Add the curry paste and sugar and simmer for 2-3 minutes to allow the flavours to develop.
Add the pork and simmer for 5 minutes.
Add the remaining coconut milk and lime or curry leaves and simmer for 15 minutes or until the fat in the coconut milk rises to the surface.
Add the fish sauce and salt and simmer for another few minutes.
Sprinkle with fresh coriander just before serving.
Serve the curry with rice, sambals and poppadums.
