As a student, I can't really afford to visit Thai restaurants daily...otherwise I would. Yellow curry is one of my favorite Thai dishes. This is a recipe I've modified to my own taste and diet. Hope you enjoy it as much as my friends and I have!
- 1⁄3 cup peanut oil
- 4 tablespoons yellow curry paste, for medium-hot dish
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 2 (14 ounce) cans coconut milk
- 1 cup vegetable broth
- 1 inch fresh ginger, cut in thick slices
- 2 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 1 large onion, coarsely chopped
- 1 red bell pepper, seeded and cut in strips
- 1 green bell pepper, seeded and cut in strips
- 2 cups carrots, cut in thick slices
- 1 cup mushroom, sliced
- 4 tablespoons soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1⁄4 cup cilantro, chopped (optional)
- 4 cups white rice, steamed
- In a deep frying pan or wok, heat oil over medium heat until hot.
- Add curry paste and garlic and cook, stirring for about 30 seconds.
- Slowly stir in coconut milk and vegetable broth.
- Reduce heat to simmer; add potatoes and cook for 10 to 15 minutes.
- Add ginger, onion, and peppers; cook until tender, about 7 minutes.
- Add carrots, mushrooms, soy sauce, and brown sugar.
- When heated through, serve over individual plates of hot rice.
- Garnish with cilantro.
Used this as a base to make my own. Very good recipe. Need to add the soy sauce for flavor. Thanks Dustin
I thought the flavor was extraordinary! Thai Yellow Curry is one of my favorites! The carrots were not quite tender by the time it was "warmed through", so next time I will add them earlier. I loved how many veggies were in this dish, the mushrooms were a nice touch!
I highly recommend this vegan curry recipe~ Took longer than an hour for me (prep + cook time) but the final product is well worth it! I used a yellow bell pepper instead of red (more expensive) and a green jalapeno chile for the heat in my 'homemade' curry paste for flavor (the coconut milk masks the flavor a lot). For instructions on how to make a Thai "yellow curry paste" yourself, look up (http://importfood.com/how_curry_paste_is_made.html). I tried to make it myself without the shrimp paste as I'm nitpicky that way about "vegan" recipes. Tasted great!
