3.Finely shred remaining lime leaves; combine with chilli. Sprinkle lime leaf mixture on curry; serve with coconut rice.

Ghee is clarified butter, meaning the milk solids have been removed. The lack of milk solids gives this fat a high smoking point so it can be heated to a high temperature without burning. It is available from most large supermarkets.
