    Heat a pan over a medium heat, add the vegetable oil and stir-fry the curry paste until fragrant. Add the sugar to caramelise slightly. Add the chicken thighs and fry for a minute or two. Pour in the coconut milk and bring to the boil. Simmer for 20 minutes until the chicken is cooked through, adding the bai cha plu or okra in the final 5 minutes.
