I found 2 wee jars of Thai curry paste recently when I was de cluttering my store cupboard. I must have bought them in Lidl when they were on a special deal ages ago as I don't remember actually buying them! I've always got coconut milk and there was some fish sauce lurking in there with some palm sugar in the fridge.
ETA the beer is a GF one my lovely mum bought me. Rather nice but v expensive!!
I fried some onions and peppers (from the freezer) and added the curry paste. I added the coconut milk, a splash of fish sauce and a dollop of palm sugar. I let it simmer for 20 mins while I cooked some rice.
I found some cooked chicken thighs in the freezer so defrosted them and added some to the sauce. I served it over brown rice. Twas rather tasty and not too shabby for a store cupboard dinner!
My 3 chickens are still alive (PHEW!!) although they're rather shy and keep hiding from me. Early days though :-)
