Massaman Chicken Curry

I love Thai food, especially the curries. I have made red, green, tofu, and massaman beef curries many times and have the recipes here for you to try. Out of all the curries I think massaman curry is my favorite. It is relatively easy to make as there are not-too-many ingredients. I start with a store-bought curry paste to cut down the time and cost. I have found that ready-made Thai curry pastes are plenty good enough when you crave restaurant-quality food at home!

Yellow Curry Chicken

A few weeks back we got yellow curry from a local Thai restaurant. I was pretty excited about it as I hadn’t had yellow curry for a long time. We used to sell a lot of yellow curry in my old restaurant. To be honest I was a bit disappointed by what we got. It was lacking flavor and somewhat watery. To me, a good Thai curry should be slightly creamy, spicy, tangy, and with a touch of sweetness.

Massaman Curry with Beef

I like all things curry, but I have a special love for curries from Thailand. I’ve only visited that country once, but I’ve come to know its cuisine fairly well because I’ve spent so much time trying their recipes.

You can get by with using a curry paste from the store, so this is pretty easy to make. It has peanuts and a touch of sweetness so it’s not your typical curry. If you know someone who says “I don’t like curry,” you may change their mind with this one.

Thai Green Curry Chicken

This week I was craving Thai green curry. I love all things curry but there is something extra special about the combination of sweet, salty, and sour flavors found in Thai curries. Thai green curry is made with the protein of your choice, green curry paste, coconut milk, and veggies. It’s a very easy, one-pot dish that’s ready in 40 minutes start to finish, and is absolutely perfect with rice or rice noodles.

Baked Chicken in Indian Spices

I have been meaning to make this chicken recipe for a long long time; about 23 years now! I finally got around to doing it. It is such a wonderful dish and brings back good memories of my first couple of months in the United States. This recipe was served to my husband and I by my wonderful sister-in-law when I first visited her home. The recipe is called “Indian Chicken” and is from the More With Less cookbook. Even though this is called Indian chicken, this doesn’t taste like most Indian dishes, because it has soy sauce and honey. I remembered, however, that it was very tasty!
