I tried thai red curry the other day. I would have wished to make the red curry paste from the scratch but it requires so many ingredients which I have not even heard of. So I had to use the readymade red curry paste. However, the final result was delicious and we had it with Thai Jasmine rice.
This is what you need to make red curry paste.
1/2 lb medium hard tofu
1/2 cup roughly chopped onion and bell pepper and mushrooms
1 cup coconut milk
1 tsp minced garlic
2 green chilli chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp fish sauce
3 tbsp red curry paste
1 tbsp crushed red pepper
salt to taste
1/3 cup roasted crushed peanuts
Cut tofu in pieces and shallow fry it. In the remaining oil fry garlic and add chilli. Add bell pepper and onion. After few minutes add coconut milk, fish sauce and salt. Put red curry paste and add tofu. Cook for 10 minutes on medium flame. Once cooked add roasted peanuts. This is optional but gives good texture. Serve it hot.
