Thai Red Curry

I've always thought I preferred green Thai curry over red, but I recently got a batch of red curry paste at a ridiculous discount, and discovered it's really quite lovely in its own right. Especially with loads of coconut to balance out the heat of the chilli. I think I'm going to be making this a lot more often from now on.

  2. Finely chop the onion and crush the garlic, and fry until softened.
  3. Add the hot water, curry paste, spices, and coconut.
  4. Slice the baby sweetcorn in half lengthways, and slice the spring onions.
  5. Add the remaining vegetables (reserving half of the spring onions to garnish) to the curry, and simmer for 5-10 minutes until soft.
  6. Serve with rice or noodles, and sprinkle with the reserved spring onions.

I always forget about using coconut milk to calm down hot and spicy sauces - thanks for the reminder!

I've never tried curry. This looks beautiful and the ingredients sound fresh and yummy!

I agree with your friend Carla, the appeal of this, for me, is in the mounds of fresh veggies. I love that you served it with very few noodles; it's mostly just the wonderful veggies to enjoy.

I've always stuck with stir fry-- maybe I'll venture out!
