Thai Green Curry with Fragrant Jasmine Beer Rice

This is a beautifully fragrant dish, with the subtle flavours of the beer mingling with the jasmine rice. You can ramp up the spice by adding more curry paste, or turn it down according to your personal preferences.

 

 

Ingredients​​​​

  1. 1 tablespoon of oil

  2. 1 white onion, chopped

  3. 100g mange-tout, chopped, 

  4. 100g fine green beans, chopped

  5. 100g broccoli- young thin sprouting

  6. 100g sugar snaps peas, chopped

  7. 100g soya beans

  8. 1 can of coconut milk

  9. 6 heaped teaspoons of green Thai curry paste

  10. A handful of fresh coriander

  11. Bottle of Thai Beer

  12. 240g Jasmine rice

Serves 4

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 15 minutes

Directions

  1. Bring 1 pint of water and 1 bottle of beer to the boil.

  2. Whilst the liquid is coming to the boil, gently fry the onions in the oil until translucent.

  3. Add the curry paste and mix thoroughly before adding the coconut milk.

  4. The liquid should now be boiling, add the rice and follow timings on the packet.

  5. Add the vegetables, except the broccoli (add this about five minutes before the rice is cooked) and gently simmer whilst the rice cooks.

  6. Drain the rice, and serve with a garnish of coriander.

  7. Preheat the oven to 200 C.

  8. Empty the can of chilli into a bowl, add the tequila and mix thoroughly.

  9. Split the mixture between two small baking dishes (see photo for an idea of size).

  10. Make two wells in each dish for the eggs and crack them into the wells.

  11. Cover with grated cheese and sprinkle with the smoked paprika.

  12. Place into the oven for 45 minutes. The time may vary slightly depending on how you like your eggs cooked. At B&C we like them well cooked. The first time you make this recipe you may need to check on the eggs periodically until you get the right time for the way you like your
    eggs cooked. 

  13. Serve immediately with hunks of fresh bread. We recommend sour dough dipped in olive oil and balsamic vinegar - yum!

  14. Another great thing about this dish is that should you not scoff the lot, it microwaves brilliantly for a midnight snack.
