Thai Chicken Red Curry

This recipe is the courtesy of Achyuthanand. He makes this dish so good that I had to take the recipe from him. And after a lot of bugging I got the recipe and tried it. This time I decide to take pictures and blog it.


Onion -1/2 [cut into thin strips]
Carrots -1 [cut into thin strips]
Tomatoes -2 small
Green pepper -1/2 (I added yellow and red too since I love veggies) [cut into strips]
Cilantro (garnish, I did not have any this day so skipped it)

Skinless boneless Chicken breast -2(If you are a vegetarian you can skip or add tofu)

Thai Chilli Garlic paste - depending on how spicy you want
Rice Vinegar - 2 tbsp (Actual recipe calls for Cooking Wine but I used this)
Soy Sauce - 2tbsp
Oil - 2 tbsp
crushed red pepper
Pepper, salt
Ginger-garlic paste, chilli powder (my additions to the recipe)

Red Thai Curry paste ( I used almost half of the can you see in the picture)
Bamboo shoots (My husband hates this so I just put half the can)
Baby corn ( I love them so put in the enitre can cut them into half)
Coconut milk -1 canSugar - 1-2 tbsp
Fish sauce - 2 tbsp ( I skipped this)

  • Cut Chicken into small strips
  • Add 2 tbsp of Rice vinegar, oil, pepper, salt and marinate it for 15 min. I added a little ginger-garlic paste and a little chilli powder but the actual recipe did not call for these.

  • Fry the chicken in a wok with little oil

  • Add Thai Curry paste to the chicken

  • Add soy sauce
  • Add Thai garlic paste

  • Let cook for about 10-15 min. so all the flavors blend into the chicken
  • Wash the bamboo shoots,baby corn and cut them into half if they are too long like mine are

  • Add Bamboo shoots, Baby Corn, Onion, Carrot Strips, Tomatoes

  • Add Coconut milk and bring to boil (approx. 10 min)

  • Add Green pepper, Basil, Cilantro, fish sauce, sugar.

  • Be careful not to overcook the green pepper. You want it to still be crunchy. Taste one and when you feel its cooked but cruchy turn it off
  • Garnish with Basil, red pepper flakes if you want it to be spicy

  • The ingredients made a huge dish so if you are trying it out the first time, cut everything into half.
  • Serve with rice and enjoy

    Note: If you want to make Green Curry just shop for green curry paste and follow the recipe

UPDATE: The curry turned out really spicy. You might want to watch how much Thai Chilli garlic paste you add. I think I added a lot.
