Special diet :


4 scallions, finely chopped
1 lb lean ground pork
1½ tsp Thai green curry paste
2 tsp lemon grass in oil
1 egg white
2 tbsp peanut or Canola oil
7 oz bok choy, sliced lengthwise
6 oz oyster mushrooms, sliced
¾ cup coconut milk
1 tsp fish sauce
1 tbsp sesame seeds


Mix together the scallions, minced pork, curry paste, lemon grass and egg white until evenly bound together, pressing the mixture firmly with the back of the mixing spoon.

Divide the mixture into 12 pieces, then shape each into a round, flattening with your fingers to make a patty shape.

Heat 1 tbsp oil in a heavy-based frying pan and fry the patties, turning once, for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown and thoroughly cooked.

While the patties are frying, heat a wide frying pan or wok with the remaining oil and add the bok choy and mushrooms. Stir-fry over a high heat for 2-3 minutes to soften.

Stir the coconut milk and fish sauce into the vegetables, bring to the boil then simmer for a further minute. Serve the pork patties with the bok choy and coconut mixture, sprinkled with sesame seeds.
