Sempoi Green Curry - Yam's recipe

i didn't have brinjal :) so mine was just with green apples ..
Another recipe that I've always wanted to make and yesterday tried my hands on it. Alhamdulillah the recipe is great (a bit spicy though ;) can lessen the amount chillies). You can use fish, chicken or beef for this dish, I used fish :)

6 nos Shallots (bawang besar merah)
6-8 cloves garlic (bawang putih)
10 green chillies (cili hijau) - can lessen this
6 small green chillies (cili padi hijau) - can lessen this surely if you cant take spicy
2-3 stalks of corriander (daun ketumbar)
1-inch gallangal (lengkuas)
1 tsp shrimp paste (belacan (bakar)

1 cup coconut cream / milk (santan)

* blend together all above to make paste liked mixture

2 cups water6 wedges of green apple
4 small brinjals, halved
3-4 pieces of kaffir lime leaves
2-3 lemon grass, slightly smashed
1/2 cup thick coconut cream / milk
oil750 g fish / chicken pieces / cut beef
2 tablespoon lemon / lime juice
salt & sugar to taste

- heat oil in a deep saucepan, saute the blended paste till fragrant rises
- add water and bring to boil
- put in fish / chicken / beef, reduce heat and simmer till tender and broth reduced to half- add apple, brinjal, lime leaves & lemon grass, increase heat and boil for about 3-4 minutes
- add coconut cream / mlik & stir
- add lemon / lime juice as you wish
- season with salt & sugar to taste
- serves hot with white rice (Thai fragrant rice suits the best)

Happ trying ... :)
