Thai Coconut Curry with Lime Rice

Thai Coconut Curry with Lime Rice

Thai red curry

I love simple suppers, ones that are quick, easy and nutritious. This Thai red curry is a go to weekly meal in my household. The vibrant colours offer great antioxidants for the body. The ginger essential oil supports digestion and makes this meal warming. The lime and lemongrass essential oil will add some sweet and zing to the dish!

  5. Once cooled slightly, stir in 1 drop of doTerra Ginger essential oil and 1 drop of doTerra Lemongrass essential oil.
  6. Garnish with fresh coriander.
  7. Add the mange tout and baby corn, reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes until sauce thickens and the cauliflower is cooked.
  8. Drain the rice when it is cooked and add 3 drops of lime essential oil. Serve with the Thai red curry.
Red Curry paste
  1. Add red chillies, coriander and cumin seeds into a dry frying pan for a few minutes to draw out the flavours.
  2. Place chilli mix from the frying pan into a food processor with all other ingredients except the essential oils. Whiz them until you have a course paste.
  3. Add the course paste into a glass bowl and add the ginger, lemongrass and lime essential oil. Mix thoroughly.
  4. The remaining paste can be frozen and used within two months.
Recipe Notes

* you can make the red curry paste as above, or buy a good quality one which is low in added sugar and preservatives.
** only use pure therapeutic grade essential oils to ingest and cook with.
