Thai curry refers to dishes in Thai cuisine that are made with various types of curry paste. Curry paste usually refers to a paste used as a cooking ingredient in the preparation of a curry. They are varying country to country and region to region.
Thai curry pastes basically include, Red chillies or green chillies, shallots, garlic, lemon grass and other herbs. This is basically in either green or red form.
Curry is prepared using lots of veggies, chicken or eggs, Thai curry paste and lots of aromatic herbs.
Many herbs or ingredients used in Thai curry paste have lots of medicinal properties and that have long since been used in traditional Thai herbal remedies. Lemongrass, lemon, turmeric, onion, ginger, kaffir lime leaves all these have lots of medicinal properties.
In this recipe I have used whole 500 gms chicken, first cooked in veg stock and water then added coconut milk and cooked further for 10 minutes. Added parboiled veggies and cooked for not more then two minutes. You can use your choice of veggies in the curry. This dish we prepare at our home on regular basis and loved by everyone including my child. This creamy, aromatic dish tastes heavenly and has its own tastes. Thai curry paste can be frozen for 2 weeks and can be used whenever required for making veg or nonveg curry. It goes well with noodles and rice.
