Name one dish which is ready in 15 minutes, it's super flavorful and exotic, requires few ingredients and it's SOOO easy to prepare that you cannot fail!

If you don't know one, I'll name one: Thai curry! This is my absolute favorite Thai dish and I would never get enough of it. Based on 5 key ingredients, it provides so much flavor and pleasure with every single bite!

What do you need for a perfect Thai curry?

  1. Thai curry paste - find it in Asian stores or why not, do it on your own!
    The main ingredients which make a Thai curry paste are: lemongrass, shallots, cumin seeds, black peppercorns, coriander seeds, galangal and shrimp paste. There are 3 types of Thai curry pastes: yellow (less spicy - it has turmeric), green (spicy - contains green chilli) and red (spicy - contains red chilli).
  2. Good quality coconut milk
  3. Chicken, beef, even vegetables if you are vegetarian. There is also Thai curry paste without shrimp paste, just check the ingredients on the label.
  4. Good quality fish sauce - it gives that umami taste. Remove if vegetarian.
  5. Kaffir lime leaves - they give such a fresh and zingy tone to the dish. I love them!
    Serve with lime juice.

  1. Start by heating some coconut oil in a pan and add the paste. Fry it for 1 minute until it starts releasing its flavours. Add the chicken to it, coat it well with the paste and cook for 5-10 minutes.

  2. After 5-10 minutes add the coconut milk and simmer everything for 5 minutes. Add the kaffir lime leaves and the fish sauce. Boil for 2 more minutes and serve hot with jasmine rice.
