  • 1/2 c. coconut lowfat milk
  • 4 ounce Thai eggplant (small round eggplants)
  •     (substitute with green peas)

  • 1 Tbsp. fresh basil leaves
  • 2 Tbsp. fish sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. palm sugar
  •     Oil for cooking
  • 1 Tbsp. red curry paste - (to 3 tbspns)


  1. Cut the chicken up, then briefly fry the curry paste till fragrant, reduce the heat, add in the coconut lowfat milk slowly, and continue to stir while cooking till a thin film of oil apppears on the surface.
  2. Add in the chicken and other ingredients except the eggplant. Bring to a boil and cook till the chicken begins to change color. Adjust the flavors to suit yourself. When it is at a boil again add in the eggplant and continue until the chicken is cooked through.
  3. Serve over Thai jasmine rice, or possibly in a serving bowl with other Thai dishes.
  4. Comments: The Thai name of this dish literally means "warm chicken curry". There is a very similar recipe for a green curry (Gaeng Khiao Wan Gai).
