A step by step process

Step 1

In a high medium-sized pot, heat up a spoon of sesame oil with curry paste. Add a teaspoon of curry spice, two tablespoons of soy sauce, and a pinch of salt&pepper to it. Dissolve in coconut water and add one passion fruit. Cook for five minutes, then dissolve a teaspoon of starch in a spoon of cold water and pour it in while constantly stirring. Let it boil and thicken up.

Step 2

Cook the rice by following the instructions on the packaging. Chop a whole mango, pineapple slices, and chicken breasts in 1 cm large cubes. Moreover, finely chop one half of red and yellow chili. You will also need to roughly cut a handful of fresh basil.

Step 3

In a pan, start roasting the chicken. Spice it with a bit of salt, pepper, and curry. When the chicken cubes are halfway roasted, and the mango and pineapple cubes. Roast everything together for 2 minutes then add into the curry sauce. Let everything cook for another 5 minutes. Right before serving, add fresh basil and stir gently. This way, it will keep its fresh and bright green color.

We went all-in with the presentation of this dish. The curry is served inside of pineapple & the rice is placed in a coconut shell. The dish is the definition of “explosion of taste”. It is spicy and fresh! We recommend serving it with a glass of chilled dry Mead, which always pairs well with spicey and slightly sweet foods.
