Curry is so wonderful

Posted in Recipe by fernieville on February 3, 2008

Curry is the most wonderful Asian countries have given us…gastronomically speaking. Tonight I cooked up some read saucy, chicken curry, with red Thai curry paste and a tad bit of yogurt and some tomato puree and onions and…oh my Hindu Gods, it was wonderful!

Here is a recipe:

2 onions
1 green pepper
1 bok choy
minced garlic ( I like lots)
2 tbsp red tomato paste
red Thai curry sauce (1/2 tbsp or more)
1 cup plain yogurt
salt, pepper, etc
chicken thighs, no skin or fat
parsley at the end
1/2 can coconut milk


Cook up the onions, peper, bok choy roots, garlic;
Add chicken after veggies are translucent
Now add water, red curry, red tomato paste, coconut milk
Cook it all down
Add Bok Choy greens, parsley, and yogurt at very end
Add red peper sauce or cayenne peper to taste for additional heat.

Serve over rice…so yummy!

I fell off the wagon

For the last two days I’ve had food at a restaurant or someone’s house. On Friday hubby and I had a date and we (me) decided to have Thai food. I had some delicious and scrumptious peanut/coconut milk chicken curry….oh it was so heavenly and thick and tasty and hot and smooth and peanutty and…

Anyhow, yesterday my friend had a lunch to celebrate his 11th Anniversary. I chose the salad…lots of it…then veggies, then meat, then lastly rice.

It’s annoying counting calories working hard all week and then BAM! Delicious curry with peanut butter and coconut milk…

But here is the silver lining: I ate half. I enjoyed my curry…half of it. And then I stopped and brought the rest home…. perhaps I shouldn’t have brought it home, but I figured my son would enjoy it…ok I ate that today, I confess, but I only ate half! The other half…

Tomorrow I get back on the wagon 🙂
