Thai curry is gaining popularity thanks to the many great Thai restaurants in the United States. Making a great bowl of Thai curry to go with soft and fluffy jasmine rice is easier than you think, even though you might not be familiar with Thai ingredients.
I love all sorts of curry but I find Thai curry one of the easiest curry to master. Instant curry paste from trusted brands such as Mae Ploy and Maesri are readily available in Asian markets or online. Get yourself a bottle of fish sauce, palm sugar (or sugar as a replacement), coconut milk, and you will most certainly have a decent bowl of Thai curry.
I made this flavorsome Thai curry yesterday from leftover ingredients in my fridge, all in less than 30 minutes. Call me lucky but I always have fr0zen seafood, so I made Thai red curry with tiger prawns and scallops. I then served my Thai curry over a bowl of steamed jasmine rice. It was an easy but uber satisfying lunch.
Think Thai curry is too complicated or intimidating to attempt at home? Think twice. Cooking Asian food is rather easy and a rewarding experience. Follow my recipe below and you will soon be whipping up a mean pot of Thai curry for your family!
Now, what is your favorite Thai curry?
