Having tasted the Red Thai Chicken Curry and the Thai Buffet I decided that I definitely need to learn how to cook it at home so that I may enjoy it. I had a Thai friend and asked him to teach me how to make it. So now this recipe is available for you.

Some people like adding canned pineapple. I do it sometimes too. If you opt to add it, do it almost at the end.

Cooking Tips

  • Separate coconut milk from cream. To separate the coconut milk from the cream just turn the can from bottom on top and you’ll have the milk on top of the can. Do not open the can completely, leave some of the lid attached to the can and use it as filter to separate the milk from the cream when pouring to the bowl.
