May I recommend this delicious chicken curry recipe!

Penang Gai (Penang dry chicken curry)

2T vegetable oil
2 garlic cloves - finely chopped
1T red curry paste
225g boneless chicken breast - thinly sliced (or tenderloins)
125ml coconut cream
1T ground roasted peanuts
20 fresh sweet basil leaves
1 long fresh red chilli - finely slivered lengthwise
2 kaffir lime leaves - thinly sliced crossways
Heat oil in a wok and fry garlic until golden brown. Add curry paste and stir well. Add all remaining ingredients in turn, except chilli and lime leaves, stirring well between each addition. Stirfry until chicken is just cooked through. Turn out onto serving dish and garnish with chilli and lime leaves.

If you want to make your red curry paste from scratch you just need a mortar and pestle and pound together each of the following ingredients in turn to make a smooth paste.

2T chopped lemongrass
1 1/2 T chopped galangal
1T kaffir chopped kaffir lime rind
5 small dried red chillis - soaked for 15min then drained and roughly chopped
2 lg dried red chillis - prepared same as above
4 garlic cloves
6 small red shallots
1/4 tsp salt

Mine never tastes like the restaurant curries

Chef_taurus2005, Apr 15, 5:29 pm

one is made from green chillies and one from red

Chef_seano7, Apr 19, 4:30 pm

Traditionally, all Thai curries were made with the same ingredients except for one thing: the chilies. Red curry was made with up to 20 red chilies, while green curry was made with green chilies, and yellow curry was made with yellow chilies. In Thailand, these chilies have slightly different taste characteristcs in addition to their color.

Also traditionally, Red Curry Paste relies on dried chillies, Green has more fresh chillies. Generally
