Use a pestle and mortar to finely pound the turmeric, chillies and peppercorns, and add the curry paste to combine. Alternatively, whizz together in a food processor.
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.
