1 stalk of lemongrass. This type of herb is used in Caribbean and many Asian cooking according to “Wikipedia”.  slightly crush to let out the sheer aroma. Fresh lemon grass are now very easy to find and if not a teaspoon of powdered lemongrass is equivalent to 1 stalk.

Green curry paste. I cheated, this store-bought paste is a real time saver. Step by step make your own paste

Eggplant

We need one medium size of aubergine cut into chunks.gettyimages-548008537

We would need about 400ml coconut milk. coconuts are said to be highly nutritious and rich in fibre. It is also lactose free, excellent substitute by those with lactose intolerance.

Now we add in the chicken, aubergine chunks and mushrooms. coat it with the sauce, and bubble for 10 minutes until the vegetables are cooked but not soggy. add in fish sauce 2-3 tbsp. to taste. (which I totally forgot to add above too)
