    Heat the oil in a large, deep skillet until shimmering. Add the onion and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened and just beginning to brown, about 7 minutes. Add the ginger, garlic and curry and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the coconut milk and stock and simmer over moderate heat until reduced by one-third and thickened, about 8 minutes.
