CHICKEN THIGH WITH RED CURRY PASTE SAUCE. You can slow cook this curry and you can use your favorite meat and it will taste delicious. This curry is also very simple to make, so I hope you will enjoy it.
I love curry. In fact, if you scroll down into the blog, you will find several curry recipe like this Yellow Curry with Chicken Breast,and this Sweet Potato Stir Fry. Saying that, you can now tell that I have curry pastes and powder in different colors. I have green,yellow and red pastes and various curry powder in my pantry.
Although curry is not really a Filipino menu, I remember eating curry in college. That time, the carenderia used the green curry, which I believed is the Madras curry powder. The meal was simply cooked with just the potato in it and chicken meat. And the chicken curry is serve to you with a piece of small meat and two small sliced potato swimming in its soup.I can actually see the chicken meat and potato drowning in there .LOL.With a P 3.00 serving, I had no right to complain. With rice, the soup was a good enough meal for a poor student like me.
Here in the US, I can make my curry however I want to. I can make it with more soup than the meat, or more veggies than the water. But for me, I am still caught with that college memories and add more water. But for this chicken curry today, I had it balanced. Just enough water with the chicken and the veggies. But I got crazy with the Red Curry paste and I added more that it is supposed to, because I just love more spice and more kick in my curry meal.
Don’t worry, the measurement I posted in the recipe is at the level 2 or 3 in spiciness,so I think you will enjoy it…
