Preparation

Step 1: Cut the ingredients

Cut the shallot finely. Chop the garlic. Peel the ginger and chop it too. Wash, then cut the fresh peppers finely.

Warning! Fresh peppers can be very spicy. Use thin disposable plastic gloves to protect your hands. This will prevent you from unpleasant surprises by removing your lenses or rubbing your eyes for example! I speak with experience!

Wash and dry the kale. Cut it into medium sized pieces. Drain the chickpeas. Peel the carrots and cut them into thin slices using a peeler.

Step 2: The curry paste

Heat a little oil. Once the wok is hot, add the shallot, garlic, ginger and fresh peppers. Sauté for about a minute.

Then add a tablespoon of oil and the curry paste. Sauté the curry paste until it browns lightly. If the pasta sticks to the wok, it’s completely normal!

If you have the time, I highly recommend you to make your homemade red curry paste! Once you have the ingredients, it’s super quick and you can store it for later in the freezer! Go see my recipe for Homemade Thai red curry paste .

Step 3: Coconut milk

Once the curry paste begins to brown, add 10 cl of coconut milk to the wok to deglaze everything. Mix well using a wooden spoon and loosen the curry paste that still sticks to the sides of the wok.

Add the water then bring to a boil. Then lower and cook over medium heat. Add the rest of the coconut milk.

Step 4: Kale and chickpeas

Then add the chickpeas, kale and carrots. Cook for about 15 minutes over medium heat. Add some salt.

Then check the seasoning. If you like fish sauce (nuoc mam), add a little. The fish sauce has the effect of salting the dish.

Step 5: Serve

Serve the curry in a bowl with the jasmine rice. Add a dash of lime juice.
