• 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped fine
  • *5 tsp garlic, minced
  • 2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated (roughly 1 tbsp)
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1 (14 oz) can full-fat coconut milk
  • *5 tbsp Sriracha
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar


Heat olive oil over medium heat in a large saucepan. Sauté onion and garlic until they start to turn brown. Proceed to add ginger, cumin, cinnamon, pepper, coriander, nutmeg, cardamom, and allspice and sauté for 1 minute at low heat looking for the spices to become fragrant. Add coconut milk, Sriracha and brown sugar, stirring for 30 seconds. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring for every 5 minutes (for 15 to 20 minutes) so flavors can fully integrate. Remove lemongrass. Serve immediately or let cool and then freeze.
