Delicious Curry Recipes

Nothing warms up my tummy like a bowl of fresh curry and brown rice. I live for cold days as it gives me a reason to bring the rich aromas of Thai curry into my house. Typically, we make curry once a week as it will last for several days and it tastes better the next day, anyway.

This lens is dedicated to curry recipes that will make great dinners, lunches and holiday feasts throughout the colder seasons.

If you are looking to make a new Thanksgiving tradition, there are plenty of curry recipes here that will fit right in!

Yellow Curry is the Color of My Eye....

Is Yellow or Red Curry Better?

Yellow Curry - From Pham Fatale


Yields: 6 servings

1-½ pounds chicken (see tips), boneless and skinless

3/4 cup Greek yogurt

1 tablespoon kosher salt

2 teaspoons papaya paste (see tips)

½ teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon ground coriander

2-½ teaspoons red chili powder, to taste

1 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground

3 Yukon Gold potatoes, boiled, skinned and cut into quarters

3 shallots, chopped

1 tablespoon grated palm sugar

5 cloves garlic

1 (2-inch) chunk galangal (or ginger)

1 small kaffir lime leaf (optional), torn in half

2 teaspoons lemongrass purée (see tips)

2 fresh curry leaves, torn in half

2 (5.6-ounce) cans unsweetened coconut milk

1 teaspoon turmeric powder

2 tablespoons cashew nuts, roasted and coarsely chopped

2 tablespoons almonds, blanched, skinned and coarsely chopped

3 tablespoons canola oil

1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped


One day ahead (if marinating overnight).

Making nut paste: In a blender or mortar and pestle, grind the cashew nuts and almonds into a fine powder.

For the galangal garlic paste: Clean the chunk of galangal and remove any dirt. Peel the galangal root with the edge of a spoon, then finely chop the root. Place the chopped galangal and 3 cloves of garlic in a blender (or a mortar and pestle), adding about 2 tablespoons (or more) of water for a smooth flow. Set aside.

Marinating the chicken:

Cut the chicken into 1-½" pieces. Wash and pat them dry using paper towels.

Season with kosher salt, ground coriander, 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper and black pepper. Add 1 teaspoon galangal garlic paste, papaya paste, ½ cup of yogurt and baking powder. Toss well. Place the chicken in a large bowl or a sealable zip-top bag. Drizzle with about 1 tablespoon of oil. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or preferrably overnight.

How to make coconut chicken curry:

The next day, remove the chicken from the marinating liquid and pat the meat dry one more time using paper towels.

In a wok, heat the oil. Add the shallots and cook on heat high until slightly golden. Lower the heat to medium-low and continue cooking until soft and tender, about 6 minutes. Transfer the caramelized shallots to a bowl. Set aside.

In the same wok, add the rest of the garlic. Cook until slightly golden. Place the chicken pieces and sear the meat until golden. Quickly transfer the chicken pieces to a platter. At this point the chicken isn't cooked completely; it will finish cooking in the coconut gravy.

In the wok, add more oil (if necessary). Add the curry leaves, kaffir lime, the remaining red chili powder, lemongrass, turmeric powder, the rest of the galangal garlic paste, nut paste and yogurt. Mix the thick paste for less than a minute. Add the chicken, shallots, palm sugar, cilantro, potatoes and 1 can of coconut milk.

Bring to a boil, then lower the heat to medium-low. Scrape the caramelized bits from the bottom of the wok using a wooden spoon. Reduce (uncovered) the liquid by cooking for about 10 minutes. Add the second can of coconut milk. Adjust seasoning of the gravy (if necessary) with salt and pepper.

Bring to a boil one last time. Turn off the heat. Cover and let sit until you're ready to serve. Remove and discard the curry leaves and kaffir lime leaves (if possible).

Transfer squash to a plate.

Stir tamarind concentrate, half of basil, fish sauce, and lime juice into pot; add tofu. Cover and simmer until heated through, about 2 minutes, adding more stock if too thick. Season to taste with salt.

Divide curry among bowls; top each with 1 wedge of squash; sprinkle remaining basil and peanuts over. Serve curry with steamed jasmine rice.
