Thai Red Curry Chicken

This is my variation of Thai red curry. You can add your favorite veggies like broccoli or cauliflower for instance, you can omit the chicken for some other protein or tofu and really have fun with this pungent aromatic curry. Although some supermarkets (especially high end one’s like Whole Foods) stock fish sauce, Thai red curry paste, Thai eggplant you may need to go to an Asian market to get these items. Enjoy the cooking smells that will fill your kitchen as you make this!

  1. Wow, this looks like such a great recipe! All of your recipes that I have seen look good (and so does the photography) Yum! Have you tried making the curry with a bit of cinnamon or nutmeg, or ginger?

  2. Yes I have…actually the red curry paste has galengal which is an Indonesian ginger. My wife does herbal extracts and we always have ginger extract around and I add it to many things. My goal with this site is to make it easy for folks to prepare these recipes or I would have them create their own curries from scratch. All those spices you mentioned are great additions to curry.
