This curry chicken recipe is my family's favorite. It's a classic yellow curry made with chunks of chicken and potatoes, and tastes like one of those wonderful curry dishes you can find in the marketplaces and streets of Bangkok. The use of curry powder (instead of paste) helps the dish come together quickly and easily. Give it a try - you'll be surprised how good homemade curry can taste!
This Thai Green Curry Chicken recipe features chunks of tender chicken simmered in a homemade green curry sauce along with healthy vegetables (zucchini and red bell pepper). The result is a gourmet-style Thai green curry that is very aromatic and beautiful to serve (great for entertaining).
This Thai Red Curry Chicken is super-easy to make, and it includes lots of healthy vegetables so there's no need to make an additional side dish of veggies. It is baked in the oven like a casserole, which means it can cook away while you're doing other things.
This Vegetarian Thai Yellow Curry is authentic, homemade vegan Thai food at its best! Note that here I have dispensed with making a curry paste; instead, all the minced herbs and dry spices are added directly to the curry pot - a great time-saver if you're in a hurry! And unlike a lot of other yellow curry recipes out there, I don't use curry powder, preferring to add the individual spices for a superior-tasting curry. Give it a try!
This sumptuous Coconut Curry Chicken recipe is cooked entirely from scratch, yet is very easy to make. It comes paired with sweet potato or yam for just a touch of sweetness in an otherwise savory Thai curry. To save time, this recipe dispenses with making a separate curry paste - the sauce is cooked up right in the pan for an easy, everyday curry perfect for both family and guests alike.

This Thai Shrimp Coconut Curry is nothing less than fantastic. The curry sauce is easy to make - just stir together a few basic ingredients, or blend them up in a food processor, chopper, or blender. The secret ingredient in this curry is a hint of tomato in an otherwise basic yellow curry, which brings the taste up to a new level. Also contributing to this sumptuous curry are pineapple chunks (fresh or canned) plus coconut milk and dry toasted coconut for a tropical-tasting Thai curry you'll want to make again and again. Superb for a dinner party.
This fish curry tastes so delectable, you won't believe how fast and easy it is - ready in just 20 minutes. Fillets of fish (any type, fresh or frozen) are simmered in a rich Thai curry sauce. It includes vegetables for a healthy one-pot dish. Like all curries, this fish curry makes excellent leftovers as well as hot lunches to take to work. This is a nice dish any time of year, but it's particularly warming during cool weather.
Thai Massaman Lamb Curry is a sumptuous dish that's rich in both flavor and nutrients. The curry sauce is made from scratch for the best flavor and freshness. The ingredients list may seem long, but it is actually easy to make - you don't even need a food processor. Just toss all sauce ingredients into the curry pot as you prepare them, and simmer together with the meat.
Indonesian cuisine has always been a major influence in Thai cooking. One of the more popular Indonesians dishes in Thailand (and throughout Southeast-Asia) is Rendang Chicken or Beef Curry. Rendang is considered a "dry" curry, which means the sauce is simmered down to a minimum. Because it is so distilled, the sauce sticks to the meat, making this dish one of the most flavorful I have ever tried. And its wide variety of spices make it extremely healthy. If you like curry, you'll love Rendang.
This famous Thai curry is rich and very flavorful. It is muslim in origin and can be made with chicken, beef, or lamb. It's a fragrant yellow curry that incorporates lemongrass and nuts together with other key Thai ingredients. Makes a sumptuous dish to serve on a chilly fall or winter night, and leftovers are just perfect for hot weekeday lunches. Serve with plain jasmine rice, or, for special occasions, with saffron rice or coconut rice. ENJOY!
