Method

The Night Before

1. Place the chicken, lemongrass, garlic, ginger, fish sauce and half the curry paste in the slow-cooker insert. Toss to combine. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour or, in this case, overnight.

In The Morning

1. Place the insert into the slow cooker and add in the remaining curry paste, stock, vegetables, coconut milk, stevia, leftover lemongrass and bay leaves. Stir to combine. Cook for 8 hours on low or 4 hours on high.

In The Evening

1. If you like a thicker curry, 20 minutes before serving stir in the arrowroot or cornflour paste. Cook on high with the lid off for 20 minutes until the sauce thickens.

2. Garnish with the spring onions and serve with roti, mountain bread or poppadoms.
