Fiery, spicy, hot, delicious with a hint of coconut milk is Thai Red Curry Chicken recipe! After making Veg Thai Red Curry paste it was quite natural for me to cook Thai Red Curry :) To make it spicy Or not is upto you if you use less of red paste the curry won’t be that spicy. But I have gone ahead and added 4 tbsp of red paste the taste was just awesome but the spice was hitting us. Even though we enjoyed the curry ate for 2 days in a row.
Lesson learnt next time I make will add only 2 tbsp of red paste. I had made Thai Red Curry Chicken specially for my guests. Guests were nobody but our friends who recently tied a knot together. They enjoyed a lot and even took some curry home along. Not only that evening guests ate this and relished it I was quite happy and satisfied with my cooking. Guess enough of my boasting.
Have eaten plenty of times Thai Red Curry sometimes with veggies sometimes with chicken. I love thai cuisine and some of their recipes are just too great. You could check out the Thai Red Curry paste here on this link.
