  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon peeled and grated fresh root ginger
  • 2 tablespoons medium curry paste

  • 200 ml (7 fl oz) canned coconut milk
  • 200 g (7 oz) frozen peas
  • small handful of coriander leaves, to garnish

  • Heat the oil in a large heavy-based saucepan, add the lamb, onion, garlic and ginger and cook over a high heat for 3–4 minutes, stirring frequently, until the lamb is browned and the onion is softened. Reduce the heat to medium, add the curry paste and cook, stirring, for a further 1–2 minutes.
