“How do they taste? They taste like more.”
And that’s exactly how I feel whenever I am served real good Thai food. I like everything about Thai cuisine; the ingredients used, its flavour, the way it’s cooked, the fresh herbs and aromatic spices and above all, the way it tastes. And another reason for my love affair with Thai food is the use of coconut in most of the recipes. A typical #Mangalorean girl that I am, who has more than average percentage of coconut milk flowing in her blood stream, my heart skips a beat and makes me do cartwheels in air whenever I find this favourite ingredient of mine in any recipe.
Since the day we have come back from our vacation in India, I haven’t been cooking anything elaborate. Although we would like to blame our mothers for spoiling us by not letting us cook in their kitchen, it was plain laziness that has kept us away from bubbling pots and sizzling pans. All these days we have been satisfying ourselves with soups and simple dal/rasam and rice. But it didn’t take much longer for stomachs to start grumbling for something exotic and our taste buds to crave for something packed with flavours.
Thai curries are as dear to me as any Rasam and Sambar. Who wouldn’t fall for a subtle blend of hot, salty, sweet and sour flavours of Thai curry which makes the taste buds tingling? When cooked with home-made curry paste it’s a cherry on icing. Served with the most aromatic Jasmine Rice, this was a rather special meal to end the weekend… Detailed recipes and photographs to follow soon…

Sigh ! Thai ! Yum Yamaa Yum @svmahajan take a bow on the worlds best Thai curry. Like what Anton Ego said in Ratatouille - Not everyone can become a great artist, but a great artist can come from anywhere - and guess what I have one at home !! Today’s dinner deserved this post ! #thaicurry#ratatouillemovie#sisterlove 👭 #chefinthehouse#lickingmyfingers
this thai curry is one of the best dishes I have ever made. And it’s quite simple!
and that’s why I want to share the #recipe with you guys
the #ingredients for the curry:
1 clove of garlic
1/2-1/3 tsp of finely chopped ginger
1 big onion
300 gr of pak choi
200 gr of shiitake mushrooms
1 pack of coconut milk
1 tsp of yellow Thai curry paste
A few sprinkles of soy sauce or Tamari
some oil 🥥🥦🌶🍚🥜 Start by sautéing the garlic , ginger and onion in some veggie oil. Add in the pakchoi and after a few minutes add in the mushrooms. Then add in the coconut milk (for this version I used oat cream, which also works very well), mix in the curry paste and some soy sauce as well. And then let it all simmer for another 7-10 minutes.
Serve with rice or zoodles 😍😍😍🤩🤩🤩 The recipe is #glutenfree and #dairyfree .
While exploring chennai, one of the best encounter was with thai food 🥘 so at absolute thai.
Great food with great ambiance and polite.
Got a great experience of 100% thai culture.
Things we have tried were:- KAENG PED(thai red curry) with KHAO NUMG (steamed rice), TUNG TONG JE (golden royal money bags), PO PIA (crispy thai spring rolls), PHAT SEEW (flat tossted noodles) .
Names were quite interesting 😜
Made Veggie Green Thai Curry and Basil Rice yesterday for Dinner.
It was Saturday so the children wanted to eat something different instead of the regular food.
Also I had all the veggies required for making the #ThaiCurry .
There was a lot of things required for the #GreenPaste .. Luckily everything was available at home.
Ingredients required for the Paste:
1.First dry roast a teaspoon of corriander seeds, 2-3 cloves and 4-5 peppercorns. Grind it in the blender.
2. In the same mixer, add 1/2 cup of basil leaves, 1/2 cup chopped corriander leaves, 2 stocks(4 inches long) of lemon grass pounded ànd cut into pieces , kalangal( if you don't have that use ginger). Here I have taken 1& a half inches of ginger;cut onto cubes; 3-4 green chillies chopped; 1 Onion chopped; 5-6 cloves of garlic chopped; 1-2 Kafir lime leaves, 1 tsp vinegar n a little salt.
3. Now grind it finely; as finely as you can.
4. The green paste is done.
1.Pour 1 teaspoon of oil in a pan and saute the green paste for 1-2 minutes. In the side itself add another teaspoon of oil and add the chopped veggies- Carrots, Bell Peppers, Broccoli, Sweet Corn. ( You can also add mushrooms and baby corn); since I didn't have these veggies I used sweet corn instead of baby corn. Saute it again for 5-6 minutes.
2. Mix the green paste and veggies together. Add a little salt.
3. Then add 2 cups of coconut milk. Pour 1 cup at a time. In the other 1 cup add a teaspoon of cornflour(Since sometimes when you overcook your coconut milk, it might just split)& then pour the remaining mixture in the pan. Add few Kafir lime leaves and add salt to taste. Boil it once again and your Green Thai Curry is ready.
4. Serve it with hot steaming Basil Rice.
We have always loved Thai food. When we discovered some of our food allergies, we appreciated Thai food even more. Most Thai recipes are free of dairy and gluten, so it is the perfect “dining out” meal for people with these allergies. (Always double check that they aren’t adding something you are allergic to.) This Panang Curry was nice and spicy, just how I like it. A perfect meal on a cool fall day! #thaifood#thaicurry#chicken#coconutmilk
I WAS TOTALLY GOING TO GO FOR A RUN TODAY!!!! ...... and then I ended up staying late at work, but I totally count the action of putting trackies and runners in the car as a step in the right direction!!! I am actually feeling really energetic, like I have energy that I need to burn which is a good sign that I’m on the healthier side of life I’m hoping :)
EXERCISE: working extra does that count?? Um No Ebony because you sit on your arse and walking to the printer is only a few steps!!!

Today is the first day of my #cleaneating and #healthy positive food intake.
I do yoga and walk 5-10k a day, but I also eat like a maniac and drink like a fish (a Merlot-loving fish). My clothes no longer fit 😬
So I made this for dinner - Thai Red #curry#chickennoodlesoup , with squash and sweet potato and extra coriander. I had to stop my husband from snacking on cereal 9pm, he blocked my way to the kitchen 10pm when my body craved a hot chocolate. He's training for the #LondonMarathon
We can do this 💪🏼👊🏼💥 Any tips on keeping alco/sugar/white carb-free over the next month? And any will-power suggestions? I'm so crap.
