  1. Add the red onion, lemongrass, ginger, coriander stalks, red curry paste and sunflower oil to a food processor and blend until it becomes a fine paste. Note: If you do not have a food processor, finely chop all the above ingredients and blend the soup with a hand blender at a later stage.

Add the coconut milk, a tin filled with water and the brown sugar and let it come to a boil. Simmer the soup for 5 minutes.
