Easy Thai Red Curry
The easiest and most flavorful homemade Thai red curry you will ever make in just 30-40 minutes! It tastes just like the restaurant-version, except 10000x times better and cheaper!
You know I couldn’t go to Bangkok without posting a Thai red curry recipe, right?
Because this is by far the easiest Thai red curry you will ever make in just 30-40 minutes, which includes prep time.
I told you – it’s too easy.
And you know you can always make substitutions to your liking:
- Brown rice, quinoa, or any other grain for basmati rice
- Chicken thighs for chicken breast
- Snap peas or broccoli for broccolini
But whatever substitution you make, the sauce here is to die for.
I don’t even need the chicken or rice or vegetables. Just serve me a bowl of the sauce.
