Chicken Red Curry

Red curry is a Thai spicy curry paste.This is a popular Thai dish consisting of curry paste to which coconut milk is added. The base is properly made with a mortar and pestle, and remains moist throughout the preparation process.

 

The standard red curry paste contains shrimp paste, which renders it inappropriate for vegetarians.Vegetarian red curry pastes are also available. Some of the ingredients for the Red curry paste itself is the core flavoring for a number of other non-related dishes.

In this cooking I am trying to make a fusion between Indian and Thai cuisine.I hope you will like it.
