  2. Add chilies and garlic.

  5. Add 100g water and bring back to the boil.

  6. Blitz well in a food processor and store in a jar in the fridge until ready to use.

  2. Move the onions to one side of the pan and add the curry paste, bashed up lemon grass and lime leaves. Cook and mix together with the onions at setting 8.

  3. Now, add the chopped tomatoes and cook until thick and all the tomato juices have disappeared.
