  • Add diced onions and continue to cook until chicken is no longer pink, about 6 minutes total. Then add in minced garlic, ginger paste and red curry paste, stirring to combine. Cook for 2 minutes before adding in coconut milk.
  • Bring sauce to a boil then reduce the heat to a simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Taste sauce and season with more salt + pepper as needed.
