    1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan or wok over medium-high heat. Add the chicken pieces; cook and stir for about 3 minutes. Mix in the curry paste, courgette, pepper, carrot and onion. Cook and stir for a few minutes.
    2. Whisk together the coconut milk and cornflour to dissolve, then add to chicken mixture. Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer over medium heat for 1 minute, or until thickened. Right before serving, stir in the coriander.


    Feel free to add more or less curry paste according to taste. Serve with wedges of fresh lime for a tasty finish.
