Woo!
I love Thai Yellow Curry and found a mix a while ago to make it at home...seemed very easy and well, you should know how I am at cooking by now.

I got potatoes and carrots today...3 medium potatoes cost me equivalent of $3. That kind of shocked me. Anyway, the ingredients were the mix, oil, coconut milk, chicken, potatoes and carrots. Rice is cooking. The apartment now smells like Thai Yellow Curry.



Tastes a bit too spicy than what the girls will like, but I'll mix more rice into it for them.

Yum!

What's the green stuff? Or is that just greenish potato?

Anyway, apart from the coconut milk it sounds like I'd love it - although I'd doubtless still give it a try...I'll try anything once, me!

The color is a bit off in the pic...yeah those are potatoes.

You can't really taste the coconut milk...it is to give it the yellow color (the actual curry paste is reddish) and to thicken up the sauce. I also mixed in some water to try to tone down the spicy-ness.

I put in a better picture, just for you! :-D

Aww, thanks! Actually, that IS a better picture...it looks scrummy! I'll be over to sample the goods as soon as possible!

Give them something sweet to drink to offset the spicy.

I love curries, but for some reason not Thai curries. My husband says it's because restaurants are cheap and don't put enough coconut milk in them. He says a good Thai curry needs a lot of coconut milk.

Mango juice did the trick for them. :-)

I was a bit surprised at how much coconut milk the recipe called for. It was definitely good!

I LOVE curry, and I love Thai. The curry I usually make is with McCormick's curry (usually yellow, sometimes red). I think I tried to follow a recipe once that used coconut milk. It must not have been very successful because I can't really remember it LOL.

One of my favorite curries is Jamaican curry dishes. Curried chicken with "peas and rice". Mmmmmmmm..... Have you tried it?

Your dish looks yummy, by the way. I'll have to take a picture of the curry dish I make a lot. Maybe I'll make it for dinner one night this week.

I could have added peas too! *remembers for next time*

Yes, take pics! I want to see!

That looks really really good! Makes me hungry!

The most diverse cuisine Ive ever tried to make was Thai noodles....Mr. PG didnt like it.

So I went back to fried chicken, potato salad, and kolaches. XD

Coconut milk?
gnotobiotically From: gnotobiotically Date: May 9th, 2006 02:15 am (UTC) (Link)
Milk from coconuts. Ever crack open a fresh one?

I don't care for fruity things with my meats and veggies though.
The only time I used Coconut milk was when making ice cream or other yummy desserts.

I used to drink the milk straight out of the coconut after my parents would drill a hole in it.
The younger the coconut, the better the milk.

Yummo.

I'm familliar with the concept, but coconut tastes awful to me.
gnotobiotically From: gnotobiotically Date: May 9th, 2006 09:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
Perhaps you taste awful to coconuts?

I don't like fruits mixed with meats and veggies either - like pineapple on pizza...YUCK! But you can't taste coconut milk in Thai curry. It is to make the color and also to thicken up the sauce. It mixes really well with the curry paste (which is so spicy to begin with, the milk tones it down a lot).

I used to do that too, drinking the milk straight from the coconut. And I'd steal pieces of fresh coconut from my mom when she was cooking. YUM.

HEY! I need a food icon. :-)

Pineapple pizza is good.
priyabradfield From: priyabradfield Date: May 9th, 2006 09:11 am (UTC) (Link)
Ick! I can't stand it. You can have the pineapple pizza, I'll keep the coconut and coconut milk.
