and Brown Rice

Anthropomorphic. It’s not a word you hear all that much. It’s used to describe an object as if it had human character traits. Though virtue is more usually associated with someone like Mother Theresa than a humble curry, bear with us here. This recipe combines all the delicious flavours of a Thai yellow curry but with all the goodness of brown rice, vegetables and even low fat coconut milk. Devilishly good has never been so saintly!

Bring a large pot of water to the boil with a ¼ tsp of salt for the rice. Chop the tops and bottoms off the green beans, then cut the green beans and the baby corn in half. Chop any big mushrooms into bite-sized chunks. Roughly chop the coriander.


Thoroughly rinse the brown rice and stir into the rapidly boiling water. Cook for 25 mins and then drain. Tip: Whilst it cooks top up the pot with more water if you need to.


Set your hob to medium-high. In a non-stick frying pan toast the cashew nuts. Tip: They take a few minutes to start browning off, but watch them like a hawk as they can quickly burn.Once they are toasted remove and keep them to the side.


Reduce the heat to medium. Add 1 tsp of olive oil to the pan. Cook the curry paste for 1 minute until it becomes fragrant (i.e. you can smell it!). Tip: If you prefer a mild curry you can use a little less. Add in a quarter of the coconut milk and stir until you have a nice smooth liquid.


Stir in the rest of the coconut milk with the mushrooms. Add all but a few of your cashews. Reduce heat to medium-low and leave to simmer gently for 15 mins.


Attempt to learn a few Thai phrases starting with: “aloy mak!” (that’s “really tasty!”).


Add in the green beans and the baby corn. Continue to simmer for 5 mins. Both should have a little bit of bite left in them when they are cooked.


Stir in three-quarters of the chopped coriander. Serve on a bed of brown rice with a few more cashew nuts and some coriander on top. A curry so good it would make a pope look naughty.
