Recipes : Thai Red Curry

Off the topic of beauty a little, I decided to mix it up a tad and add some recipes into the equation.

Thai red curry is one of my all time favourite meals, I love the coconut flavours and creamy-ness to it, with a bit of extra kick from the red chillis. It’s pretty simple to cook as well and this has become a firm favourite of mine. With cooking, I’m not one to measure things exact, in fact I kind of just chuck it all in and hope for the best, and alter recipes to how I want them. I think that’s what creates the fun in creating new meals..

Before I get started though, I am definitely not a chef and I am not thai! This is just my take on a recipe, using cheaper ingredients for the every day working person to be able to have time and money to create. 

Here’s what you will need!

  • Coconut Milk – I use around half a tin, but you can use however much you like, depending on how creamy you want it to be. But 300ml is what is recommended.
  • 1 red Chilli – Finely Chopped and de-seeded
  • 1 Small Onion – Finely Chopped
  • Chicken breasts (how much, depending on how many you are cooking for) diced up or whole if you fancy!
  • Thai Fish Sauce – 4 teaspoons
  • Thai Red Curry Paste – 3-4 tablespoons
  • Sugar – 1 teaspoon
  • Vegetable Oil – 2 teaspoons
  • Corriander – Handful if required – Leaves cut finely

What you need to do:

  • Heat the oil in a large frying pan and add the onions in and cook on a gentle heat, stirring for about 3 minutes or until soft.

  • Add the red curry paste and heat for another 2 minutes.
  • Add the chicken to the frying pan/wok stir in well and then fry for 3 minutes. Pour and stir in the coconut milk and bring to the boil, turn down the heat once boiling and simmer on a lower heat, cooking the curry gently. Stir occasionally and cook for 10 minutes or until the chicken is cooked and the sauce is thick.
  • Stir in the fish sauce, sugar and chilli. If required, add in half the coriander and mix in (I forgot to add it in mine!).

  • Serve with rice (I served with chips too cause I’m a fatty!) and the other half of the coriander on top.
