Here’s how you do it

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 190C/ 170C fan. Slice the courgette into 1cm thick rounds and cut the peeled onion into chunky wedges. Drizzle generously with oil and a pinch of salt, till the vegetables are well coated. Spread out on a baking tray and roast for about 20 minutes, flipping halfway through the cooking, or until the courgettes and shallots are tender and golden on the edges. Alternatively, you can grill the vegetables in a hot griddle pan, flipping once so they are charred on both sides.
  2. Over a medium heat, gently fry the Rempapa spice paste in a little oil until fragrant - about 5 minutes. Add the coconut milk and a big pinch of salt, bring to a simmer. You can also add a splash of water / vegetable stock if you prefer a thinner consistency.
  3. Stir the cooked vegetables into the curry, and let the curry come back up to the simmer. We then like to turn the heat off and let the vegetables sit for a couple of minutes - the courgettes should soak up all the lovely flavours from the curry sauce.
  4. Finish with the fresh herbs and roasted peanuts/ coconut, and serve with steamed rice.
