📝 How to make Thai Red Coconut Chicken Curry
Below, I will briefly run you through the recipe of this Thai Red Chicken Curry-
- So, first, you begin with coating the Chicken with salt and freshly cracked black pepper. I have used boneless Chicken Breast pieces which I have coated with Kosher Salt and Cracked Black Pepper.
- Second. the next step is to heat a pan with some Coconut oil and sizzle the onion and garlic. As the onion, garlic gets fragrant, add the Thai Red Curry Paste and Fish Oil. Allow the Thai Red Curry Paste to cook over low flame for 2-3 minute.
- After, that, add the Chicken Broth, Coconut Milkand mix until combined.
- Finally, add the Chicken Pieces, the Kafir Lime Leaves, and Coconut milk. Add some sugar and stir to combine everything.
- Cover cook for 20 minutes or until the chicken gets cooked.
🍚 How to make Jasmine Rice
Making Jasmine rice is very easy. Unlike long-grain rice, this takes very little time to cook and ratio. of rice to water is 1:1 1/2
So, to make the Jasmine rice, first, wash the rice in a fine-mesh strainer or a colander and drain the water.
As the rice gets washed properly, throw it in a pan, along with 1 1/2 cup of water. Cover cook for 10-15 minutes over medium-low heat.
After 15 minutes, fork the rice and check if it's done. It's dry and fluffy, it's ready to serve. If not, cover cook for 3-4 more minutes.
Serve this Jasmine rice beside the Thai Red Coconut Chicken Curry.
You can also include some veggies in this curry. Cauliflower, Broccoli, Red Pepper, Mushrooms, Carrots, Butternut Squash, Pumpkin, Green Beans, or Edamame. This makes this even delicious and hearty.
🥘 Is this Low Carb?
No, But you can make it low carb by skipping out on the extra added sugar. That won't make this extra spicy as Coconut Milk has a natural sweetness that will tone down the spiciness of this curry. Also, you can increase the amount of Coconut milk you use to make this even sweeter.
Also, since this will get naturally low carb and keto-friendly, you can skip the rice and serve this with Cauliflower rice or Riced Cabbage.
