We love Malaysian and Thai cuisine. Unfortunately, we don’t get halal options. Mr. Parveez introduced me to Thai and Malaysian cuisine. I always seem to find similarities between Indian and these cuisines. Thai cuisine has Peanuts and Red chilies as the base along with coconut puree or coconut milk.
Since we can only consume seafood, we don’t get to try all the flavors in a cuisine. So trying them at home is kind of the only option. Honestly, I think its a great way of not just learning to cook a new cuisine but also a way of cooking in a healthy way. The ingredients that you use are fresh and making a dish with fresh ingredients and serving it right away not just makes you enjoy so many flavors fresh but it also has loads of health benefits.
This curry is pretty easy to make. The thai red curry paste I used is market bought, since I wasn’t too sure of the flavors I didn’t want my experiment with a new dish to be not close to the flavor. I used Bell peppers, onions, scallions and garlic. You can also add baby corn or any other veggies of your choice.
Serve it with some boiled Rice and enjoy it warm.

The curry is mild and goes best with boiled Rice.
The curry tastes best when made and served fresh. You can also use fish or Shrimp or even Mushrooms or Paneer or Tofu [if you are a vegetarian] as an option other than Chicken.
