It’s all change!  I have recently started a website www.nelliepompoms.co.uk and am   s l o w l y   but surely moving the blogs from here across to there.  Huge thanks to Gabriella Buckingham who designed my original logo and Sarah at Studio Spence who has put it all together for me, if you’re looking for a website then do get in touch with Sarah, she’s very clever (and patient!).

The website has been an idea of mine for ages.  Drawing on my many adventures and journeys, shopping experiences and personal recommendations I have brought everything together and popped it all in one place.  It’s where you will find food and drink suggestions, recent book reviews, the Instagram feed, Twitter timelineNellie Pom Poms Facebook status updates, blog and shopping inspiration from some very lovely people and businesses like Common Farm Flowers, Myddfai, Bowlovers, More-Hall, Bodlon, 2 Little Boys, Hunter Gatherer and more!

So, this blog post is short and sweet (much like myself!), but I do hope you will bookmark www.nelliepompoms.co.uk, sign up to the blog on the website and tell your friends.

Recipe: Thai Green Curry

Standard

IMG_5531One of my favourite easy dishes is Thai Green Curry, there are other colours available as well but green is the one I make the most as everyone in the family will eat it and there will be no complaints.  I can’t be doing with fussy eaters!

Not only is the curry bursting with flavours and colours it is also really simple to make and what goes in depends on what you like or have to hand.

Ingredients

Meat – I tend to use chicken breasts or thighs, works equally well with thin strips of beef or big fat prawns

Vegetables – you choose but I use Leeks, Spring Onions, Peppers (Red, Yellow, Orange), Baby Sweetcorn, Mange Tout, Sugarsnap Peas, Brocoli, Water Chestnuts, Bamboo Shoots, Spinach, Basil, Lemongrass

Coconut Milk

Thai Green. Red ot Jungle Paste

Method

I fry the meat (unless I am making a vegetarian option), leeks and spring onions in oils that have got some oomph (Chiltern Cold Pressed Chilli Infusion or Stir Fry Infusion are what I have to hand) and then either

Slow Cooker – pop it in with coconut millk, Thai paste and most of the vegetables, (leave out the green vegetables) and cook on keep warm or low heat for 6 hours or so.  Just before serving give the green vegetables a quick dip in boiling water and then transfer them to the slow cooker.

Wok – throw the chicken in with the rest of the ingredients and let it bubble away for 15 minutes or so, until the vegetables are cooked to your liking.

Serve with rice or noodles and enjoy!
