Gather all the ingredients, wash and cut vegetables. In boiling water, add carrot. 15 seconds later, add baby corn. 45 seconds after that, add zucchini. Add the bok choy after 40 additional seconds for 20 seconds.

Then place all vegetables into an ice bath using a strainer. Cut fresh cherry tomatoes into halves.

To make the Thai curry paste: blend the Thai herbs (galangal, kaffir lime, lemongrass), coriander roots, garlic, cumin, basil, lime juice and red chilli into a fine paste. Keep aside one leaf of kaffir lime and basil for garnishing.

In a hot pan, add sesame oil and cook the paste thoroughly. Once the paste is set, flavour it with an additional leaf of kaffir lime and basil.

In a small blender, place chopped coconut, add (1/4 cup) water and blend thoroughly. Then strain through a muslin cloth.

In a hot pan, add the Thai curry paste and coconut milk and stir continuously. Add the blanched vegetables and cherry tomatoes and cook through. Add salt to taste.
