Notes about this recipe

  • LFL on June 02, 2021

    4.5 stars Easily the best Thai coconut curry I’ve ever made. We stir-fried veggies as well as tofu before adding the sauce from this (made separately). The results went beyond the typical Thai restaurant curry and this was just stellar. It’s worth it to purchase authentic Thai ingredients if you can. The curry is intensely sweet and salty so be prepared for skyrocketing sugar and sodium. The portions are small and I recommend doubling them. You probably don’t need much more sauce but more of the other stuff (veggies and/or tofu) is essential IMO. There’s a slight undertone of bitterness that I put down to the one change we made. Because we couldn’t find lesser galangal we substituted it with more greater galangal in the curry paste. The author’s website says not to do that, to leave it out instead, so I think the next time we make the curry paste we’ll do that.
