1 Since this curry cooks quickly, place rice on to cook.
2 Meanwhile, heat oil in a frying pan or wok. Stir in curry paste and cook for about 1 minute then add onion, potatoes and kaffir lime leaves (if using). Stir-fry for 1-2 more minutes.
3 Add beef and stir-fry for 1 minute then pour in coconut milk and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
4 Add vegetables and bamboo shoots (if using) and thin sauce with water (if required). Simmer vegetables for about 10 minutes until just tender then add fish sauce and sugar. Season to taste with salt (if required) then stir in basil (if using). Serve over rice garnished with extra basil.
