Thai curry, a signature dish of Thailand, is a mixed bag of striking flavours and invigorating aromas. Thai cuisine lays emphasis on a mixture of texture and flavours from various herbs and vegetables; and Thai curry reflects the cuisine in the right sense. It is a rich dish made of a curry paste and coconut milk and enhanced with some flavourful veggies, meats and spices. We have always relished this dish with rice or breads at restaurants, parties and weddings. Though Indian kitchens are now opening up and welcoming all kinds of cuisines from around the world (think Italian and Chinese), we never heard of Thai curry being made at home. Probably, that's because no one knows how to make it and how to source the ingredients. You'll be surprised to know that Thai curry can be easily made at home with common ingredients you can easily find at your local grocery store.
Thai curry can be made in various forms with vegetables or different meats. You can also make it in different colours - green, red, yellow etc. for each day of experimentation.
