Thai Red Chicken Curry


First of all I would like to wish you all a very happy new year 2011.Recently I started cooking Thai food and this is my very first Thai recipe. I enjoyed it with fried rice and the combo is just superb.The recipe is very easy to follow and takes just few minutes to cook.

Ingredients

Thai Red Curry Paste(Store brought) 2 tbsp
Coconut milk 1 can(12 oz)
Chicken breast 2
Veggies 2-3 cups
Brown Sugar 1 tbsp
Fish Sauce 2 tbsp
Basil Leaves 8-10
Oil 2 tbsp

Method

1. Cut chicken into small strips/pieces.

2. Heat oil in a pan and add the chicken pieces in it.Cook till the chicken is cooked.Add the veggies and cook them for 1-2 minutes.I used snap peas,carrots,bamboo shoot(canned),broccoli,mushrooms.

3. Now add coconut milk,curry paste and mix thoroughly.Let it cook for 5 minutes.

4. At this point add fish sauce,brown sugar,water(1/3 cup) and allow it to simmer for another 2-3 minutes.

5. At last add chopped basil leaves and serve hot with fried rice.

Note: 1. You can also use green peas,beans,baby corns,bell peppers or any other veggie.

2. If you want it more red/hot then add paprika/red chili powder accordingly.

3. Before using snap-peas pull one end of pea and drag across to take the string out.

4. If you don't want to use fish sauce you can always use soy sauce.

5. Instead of chicken you can use shrimps also.For a veg-version use tofu.
