Curry paste:

  • 4 cloves garlic peeled and crushed
  • 2 tsp lazy red chilli or 2 red chillis
  • 2 lemongrass peeled and chopped
  • 3 cm fresh ginger peeled and chopped
  • 4 shallots peeled and chopped
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tbsp oil

For the curry:

  • 1 onion
  • 400 g tin light coconut milk
  • 1 tsp light soy sauce

  • 150 g baby corn
  • 150 g mange tout - I used half normal, half purple
  • 100 g sugar snap peas
  • Half a lime in wedges
  • Chopped coriander to serve


  • Use a hand blender to make a curry paste from the first set of ingredients, in a large bowl.
  • Fry the curry paste for 2 mins in a saucepan, then add the onion and fry until soft. If needed, add a little more oil before adding the onion.
  • Transfer to the slow cooker then add the rest of the ingredients (coconut milk, soy sauce, lime leaves, baby corn, mange tout, sugar snap peas) and stir well.
  • Add the lime wedges on top.
  • Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on low for 5-6 hrs until the vegetables are cooked.
  • Remove the kaffir lime leaves and lime wedges.
  • Sprinkle with the coriander and serve with rice.
