Thai style Pineapple Coconut & Chicken Curry...

Have been craving a warm salad dish my Mum has made a few times... It was made with Toasted Coconut, BBQ Chicken, Pineapple but can't for the life of me think of the other ingredients so whipped this up to help satisfy the cravings until I can quiz her...

Thai style Pineapple Coconut & Chicken Curry...

2 chicken breasts, diced
1 medium Red Onion, sliced thinly
250ml Coconut cream (I used 250ml of water & 8 dessert spoons of Coconut milk powder)
2tsp Red Thai curry paste
1 heaped tsp of minced Garlic
3 heaped tsp of minced Galangal
2 heaped tsp of minced Lemongrass stalk
1 Kaffir Lime leaf, sliced

2Tbsp of oil
1tsp Red Thai curry paste
1tsp of minced Garlic
3tsp of minced Galangal

Large handful of Beans, Chopped into thirds
1 ½ Celery stalks, cut into thin strips (julienned)
½ Red Capsicum, chopped
Handful of Thai or Sweet Basil, roughly chopped
Small handful of Snow Peas, chopped into thirds
