This recipe was given to me by a woman I used to work with. I by no means think this is the epitome of authentic cooking, but it's my favourite curry dish.


Serves: 0

  • 11 ounces chicken (or steak, pork or tofu - cut a quarter inch thick and two inch long)
  • 2 thinly sliced makrut lime leaves
  • 2 cups unsweetened coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons red curry paste
  • 1 tablespoon thai fish sauce (nam pla)
  • 2 tablespoons ground unsalted peanuts
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ¼ small thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 cup rice

  • Cook rice according to the package
  • Heat 1 cup (half a can) of coconut milk and the curry paste together in a wok. Stir to dissolve and cook until the oil from the coconut milk rises to the top and the sauce thickens (about 5-6mins)
  • Add fish sauce, rest of milk & meat (tofu).
  • Reduce the heat and stir for another minute.
  • If you have them around add the peanuts, ¾ of the lime leaves, and sugar. Stir. Turn heat to max and cook for 8 mins, stirring occasionally.
  • Reduce heat to med/low and simmer for another 3 to 4 mins
  • Garnish with onion slices and leftover leaf ribbons (but I barely ever do this b/c I'm lazy and I don't want to waste anytime b/w cooking and getting the goodness into my mouth). Serve on top of rice.
