Thai Chicken Curry

For a quick yet exciting dish, you can’t go wrong with this fragrant Thai chicken curry. It’s zesty, smooth and extremely fresh. The heat of chilli is tamed just enough by creamy coconut and zingy lime, allowing you to enjoy an intense blend of flavours all at once. The soft mushrooms and crunchy mangetout add a contrasting texture. Serve with rice or noodles and top with a generous helping of fresh coriander.
