If your children aren’t familiar with spicy food this is an ideal introduction, as it gives a mild to medium strength curry.

Prepare the onion, heat the oil in a wok or frying pan and then gently sauté the onion for about 5 minutes. You want it soft but not coloured.

Meanwhile prepare the potatoes, green beans, baby corn and red peppers.

Add the curry paste, tomato puree, diced potatoes, chicken and red pepper to the onion stirring the mixture for a couple of minutes then adding in the fish sauce, coconut milk and 100ml water.

Bring the mixture to a gentle simmer and cook uncovered for 15 minutes before adding the baby corn and green beans to the curry.

Continue cooking for 5-8 minutes until the vegetables are just tender and just before serving finish by stirring in the lime juice and coriander.
