Coconut & Curry Emulsion

This coconut and curry emulsion is from the cookbook “The 6 ingredients” by Conrad Gallagher. Coconut milk, one of my favourite ingredients, makes a fantastic creamy base for the vegetables in this Asian-style soup. The curry powder also helped towards the excellent final flavour. Just make sure you use fresh, good-quality curry powder not one that has been in the back of the cupboard for the last six months.

Freshly grated root ginger – 25 grams

Shallot, finely chopped – 1
