  • 8 mixed skin-on chicken thighs and drumsticks
  • 1 red onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 thumb-sized piece of fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 lemongrass stalk, finely diced
  • 2 tbsp mild curry powder
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 500ml chicken stock
  • 400ml coconut milk
  • 4 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 carrots, peeled and roughly sliced
  • 4 tbsp Thai fish sauce
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 175g okra, trimmed and cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 aubergine, cubed
  • 6 shallots, peeled and quartered

Step by step

Get ahead

Make up to the end of step 3 a day ahead; chill.

  1. Heat the oil in a large deep pan or casserole over a high heat. Add the chicken pieces and fry for 10 minutes, turning often, until they’re browned. Transfer to a plate. Lower the heat and add the red onion, ginger and lemongrass. Gently fry for 6-8 minutes until softened.

  2. Return the chicken to the pan, add the curry powder and garlic, stirring until the chicken is well coated. Add the stock, coconut milk, potatoes and carrots; stir. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer gently for 15 minutes.

  3. Season with the fish sauce, sugar and a pinch of black pepper; add the okra, aubergine and shallots. Cook, covered, for 10 minutes.

  4. Remove the lid, stir in the mangetout; simmer for a further 5 minutes. Serve sprinkled with the basil, spring onion and chillies.
