Lotus Red Curry Recipe


  • 50g Lotus Red curry paste
  • 400ml coconut milk (1 tin)
  • 500g cooked sliced meat (chicken/pork/lamb/beef/seafood/tofu)
  • 1 large pepper (cut into slices)
  • 120g Lotus sliced bamboo shoots
  • 1-2 chopped red sweet chillies
  • 200-250ml of chicken/vegetable stock (water may be used as a substitute)
  • Sprinkle of sweet basil
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce


  1. Pour the vegetable oil into the wok at medium heat
  2. Add the curry paste, stirring until it blends with the oil
  3. Add the coconut milk, and approx. 200-250ml of stock (depending on preference of a thick/thin sauce) More stock can be added if required
  4. Add the pepper, bamboo shoots & chillies
  5. Add the sugar then fish sauce. Now, bring to a boil
  6. Finally, add the cooked meat and simmer for 5 minutes, before adding the sweet basil – if beef or lamb is used, more cooking time is needed until the meat is tender.
