Thai Red Curry Recipe

Thai Red Curry

Total Time: 20 minutes

Serves: 1

Also known as “spicy curry”, this popular Thai curry gets its name and colour from the large number of red chillies needed to prepare it. Besides plenty of red chilli paste, this aromatic curry uses coconut milk and generally includes meat, such as chicken, beef, pork, duck or shrimp, or a vegetarian protein source such as tofu. We elevated the flavours of the curry, by adding a touch of tang using our 100% natural, Lime Leaf + Lemongrass Stir Fry Sauce.

Chef’s note:

Even if you double up the recipe, leftover curry freezes well and tastes just as great even the next day
