For the Cambodian chicken
Put the chilli, coriander, garlic, ginger and lemongrass/lime leaves (if using) into a food processor and puree together. Keep and little of the chilli and coriander back for finishing the dish.
Heat the groundnut oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Fry the chicken until brown all over.
Add the coriander paste and the peanut butter and stir to coat the chicken and make a thick sauce. Add the chicken stock and yogurt and simmer the whole mixture until it is a thickness you desire, more than 10 minutes to make sure the chicken is cooked.
Throw over the reserved chilli and coriander and stir through to add a lovely bit of colour.
For the pineapple fried rice
Cut the pineapple into 1 inch chunks. Place a large frying pan on a high heat Beat the eggs together and fry into a large thin omelette. Remove from the pan and cut into strips and set aside.
Lightly fry spring onions in groundnut oil, add ginger, chillies and the spices. Add bacon, fry together for 2-3 minutes. Add rice and fry stirring the mixture so it doesn’t stick. Add the tomatoes, peas and pineapple to the pan and stir until completely mixed.
Cook gently until the peas are cooked through. Finally top with the chopped coriander and serve warm with the chicken topped with the omelette.
Hints and tips
The thickness of the curry depends on what other elements you choose to bring to the table. If, for example, you have some naans (homemade or shop-bought) on the side, you may want a runny mix for dipping. If you’re planning on simply plopping it on the rice, then it may be better to have it a bit thicker so that the whole dish doesn’t become a big gluey mess.
Don’t be intimidated by the long ingredient list for the rice – most of them are store cupboard staples and need only a bit of chopping. Of course you can leave out any of the ingredients or even add any you like!
