Ellenor says: “I had this dish when I was 18 years old and on holiday in Chang Mai in Thailand; where they made this amazing delicious curry. Since my travels I have tried to recreate the dishes I tried at home, which is where I came up with this one. It’s such a simple dish as everything gets thrown into one roasting tray with minimal fuss – perfect for a Friday treat.”
