  • 2 cups water

  • 1 cup uncooked jasmine rice

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 onion, cut into wedges

  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

  • 1 pound chicken tenders, cut into bite-sized pieces

  • 1 tablespoon green curry paste, or more to taste

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil

  • 1 eggplant, cut into 1-inch cubes

  • (32 ounce) carton chicken broth, or more to taste

  • 1 (15 ounce) can light coconut milk

  • 1 (8 ounce) can bamboo shoots

  • 2 teaspoons lime juice

  • 1 small bunch fresh basil leaves, or to taste


  1. Bring water and rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and water has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Mix in onion, fish sauce, brown sugar, ginger, and garlic; cook and stir about 5 minutes. Add chicken, curry paste, and basil. Cook, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes more. Add eggplant, cover, and reduce heat to low to avoid burning spices. Cook about 5 minutes more.

  3. Pour broth, coconut milk, and bamboo shoots into the saucepan. Continue cooking until eggplant is tender and curry is heated through, 5 to 10 minutes more. Stir in lime juice before serving over cooked rice with basil leaves.
