Staying at the parental’s place down South is one of my highlights, it lets me get away from Sydney and work and to get the beautiful waterfront place. It is heavenly, kangaroos, birds, plants, flowers and scents abound. As soon as I arrive I am exhausted for about two days because it is just so peaceful down there you unwind immensely. It recharges the soul, as does food cooked by your mum. They have the biggest open kitchen that looks over the entire house, it is conducive to cooking a nice meal. This recipe for Mum’s Lime Chicken Thai Curry I originally wrote about back in September 2009, it is mum’s go too easy meal that is packed with flavour and warmth. I have recently been inspired by my new foodie obsession, Donal Skehan, I am totally in love with this guy and his cooking videos, he does a delightful one with his mum that is so infectious, that I had to dig up one of my ma’s nomnoms, so in honour of Donal, Liz and my ma, enjoy!! And PS: please forgive the horrible photos from back then 🙂

ORIGINAL RECIPE POSTED IN SEPTEMBER 2009 ON THE OLD SITE, SYDNEY TABLE

This is the last of mum’s awesome recipes from my holiday down the South Coast. It is easy to make and sublimely delicious. Yay Mum – Mum’s Lime Chicken Thai Curry is one of my fave’s. It is nice for a cold winter night or even a hot summer night. It also freezes well and is great to warm up in the microwave for a work lunch.

As an alternative to the recipe below – this could be done in a slow cooker for about 6-8hrs on low.

MUM’S LIME THAI CHICKEN CURRY | SPOONING AUSTRALIA RECIPE | SERVING UP

 

YOU WILL NEED TO:

1) Start by warming the coconut cream in a MED – LGE heavy duty pot
2) Gradually stir in the curry paste and don’t fret if it starts to bubble and boil
3) Add the chicken and all the lime leaves and stir through thoroughly
4) Add the fish sauce and brown sugar and bring to the boil
5) As soon as boiling put a lid on it and turn the temperature down to medium/ low
6) Simmer for about ten minutes
7) Add peas, stir through and simmer for another ten minutes
8) Squeeze in juice of 1/2 lemon and add basil and leave simmering for another two minutes

I recommend a sweet red wine with this one and don’t forget to tell your dinner guests to remove the whole kaffir lime leaves. They are not the best to eat

    It is very yummy ladies!!
    Lara – you eat the five that are cut up finely and these are ok. You nearly cut them up to powder form.
    Thai food would definitely be my favourite food.
    Janet – when mum visits she normally brings some frozen in an ice cream container.

    Looks good Jason – sounds like I’ll have to make a double batch – one to eat and one to freeze.
    Thanks mum!

    Nice idea Helen – I always try and cook an extra plate or two worth for the leftovers. They come in handy for lazy or tired days.

    Mum says “pleasure” 🙂
