Thai Curry

April 26, 2011

I’ve been “making” lots of red curry!

I don’t really make it, though, since my curry paste comes from a jar from one of the Belleville markets.

If you can find good packaged Thai curry paste (which, in my Midwestern and French experience, involves skipping the stuff you find in the “Thai” section of big grocery stores–try to find a store that specializes in Thai, or at least Asian, ingredients), you can make lots of quick and delicious meals. Just mix together your curry paste with some heated coconut milk, and add some salt and sweetener if necessary. If you can find them, try throwing in some lime leaves and lemon grass, and let them stew in the curry for a bit. Alternatively (if you’re using a red or masaman curry paste), you can try adding in some peanut butter:

When I made the above curry, I did just that–I added in a little peanut butter, followed by some seared broccoli and tofu. Then we ate it on top of quinoa, which I had also cooked with a little curry paste.

    I need to cook more at home. Lately I have been doing stirfry…or just eating hummus and pita. Need a change!

      Can you get ahold of some curry paste? If so, it’s great for a quick meal!

      We can definitely make curry together! Although if you come to South Bend, we should eat some Masaman curry made by the masters at Thai-Cambodian Restaurant (yes, that’s what it’s called). I’m always shocked that we can get good Thai food in South Bend.

      Oh, and we fly into Georgia on the 17th for a wedding, and then we’ll be tooling around North Carolina for a while. It’s going to be a long trip back to Indiana!
