Method

  1. Put the spring onions, coriander, lemongrass, chilli, garlic and ginger in a food processor and pulse into a coarse paste (or pound to a paste in a large pestle and mortar).
  2. Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan and tip in the paste, then stir-fry for 2-3 minutes. Pour in the coconut milk and simmer for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the chicken to the pan along with the spinach and chopped mango. Cook for 1 minute to warm through, then season with the soy sauce and a good squeeze of lime. Serve immediately in bowls, scattered with sliced chilli and coriander leaves, with cooked rice.
