Authentic Thai Red Curry

My husband Scott gave me the challenge of making Thai Red Curry like he had at Thai at Silver Spring. I tried a few different recipes but didn't quite get a "thumbs up." While perusing the web I found a recipe from the Adobe Nido Bed and Breakfast in Albuquerque, New Mexico (now closed) and headed over to the local Thai market to get the ingredients.  Incorporating some suggestions from one of the market employees, Scott says I've got the winner right here!

Since that challenge back in 2012, this recipe has become one of my favorite authentic Thai recipes to cook for family and friends. Pictured below are a few vintage shots of a cooking lesson with my sister-in-law Erica.

  1. Looks beautiful! I love thai curry -- might need to give this a try. Is switching it up and making green curry as easy as changing the paste, or would veggies and other ingredients need to be switched out as well?

  2. Thank you! Yes, you can absolutely use this recipe to make green curry instead. Let me know how it turns out!

  3. I LOVED this it was amazing and simple and did i mention AMAZING i will never order Thai out again...I made two different types...a pumpkin curry with Kambocha Squash and the chicken version both were FAB!! Thanks January

  4. Tamara thanks for your feedback! I'm so glad you liked the recipe! I hope to share with you many more :)
