1 Make curry paste
Peel and chop the shallots and garlic. Chop the chilli (tip: remove the seeds if you like it milder). Peel and finely grate the ginger (tip: use a spoon to peel the ginger). Blitz the shallots, garlic, chilli, ginger, lemongrass paste, oil, turmeric and black pepper in a food processor or with a hand-held blender until smooth.
2 Prep chicken and vegetables
Chop the chicken breast into bite-size pieces. Peel and finely chop the carrot. Trim and chop the green beans into 2 cm pieces.
3 Cook curry paste
Heat a soup pot over a medium heat with a drizzle of vegetable oil. Once hot, add the curry paste (made in step 1) and fry for 5 min.
4 Simmer
Add the carrots, coconut milk, measured water, crumbled chicken stock cube, soy sauce and lime leaves. Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium-low, cover with a lid, and simmer for 10 min. Meanwhile, chop the coriander roughly. Slice the lime into wedges.
5 Add chicken
Add the chopped chicken and the green beans and simmer for 5-7 min further or until the chicken is cooked through. Season to taste with a squeeze of lime juice and a pinch of salt.
6 Serve
 Divide the soup among bowls and garnish with any remaining lime wedges and the chopped coriander.
Tips for fussy eaters
Pick out some of the chicken pieces and serve them with boiled rice and vegetable crudites.
Pro tip
Don't rush the frying of the curry paste. Caramelizing the paste builds depth of flavour.
