A deliciously moreish, easy-to-cook Yellow Coconut Curry inspired by the botanicals found in the the award-winning gins at Distillery Botanica? Yes please.
Our head chef Brooke Ng and owner Heaven Leigh took a roadtrip north to the NSW Central Coast to visit the award-winning Distillery Botanica for a gin tasting with herbalist and master distiller Philip Moore.
Inspired by the botanicals Philip and his team use in their gins, Heaven and Brooke decided to create a special Vegan Yellow Coconut Curry among the fragrant gardens of the distillery.
Take a look at the tutorial above on how to cook this deliciously warming curry step-by-step, with the full recipe below.
1 bunch coriander stalks
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp cumin seeds
6 kaffir lime leaves
3 stalks lemongrass (white part only)

6” fresh turmeric
1 cup olive oil
1 tbs olive oil
100g green beans
1 large potato
1 ½ cup Kara coconut cream

2 cups water salt to taste
1. Roughly chop turmeric, coriander stalk, lemongrass stalk, ginger, kaffir lime leaf, add 1 cup of olive oil, place into the blender and blend well until paste.
2. Heat on high heat, add drop of olive oil, so paste won’t stick, and add curry paste.

5. In separate pan, put 1tbs olive oil on high heat, add in all vegetables and pan fry for 1-2 minutes or until lightly brown.
6. Add curry paste to vegetables, add water and coconut cream, and mix well. Add a little more or a little less water depending on if you want a thicker curry.
