A.) Thai yellow chicken curry recipe 


  •  This chicken curry recipe from Thailand uses dry roasted spices and fresh ingredients to make a aromatic curry paste. You may make the curry paste from scratch or simply used ready-made curry paste like Mae Ploy, Mae Sri or Nittaya brand. Refrigerate any leftover paste in a ziplock bag. It will keep for at least a month.
Yellow Curry Paste Ingredients
  • 12 dried Thai chilis
  • 2 tsp sea salt (or coarse salt)
  • 2 shallots, peeled
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 thick slice fresh galangal (or dried galangal soaked in water until softened)
  • 1 stalk lemon grass, sliced crosswise (discard tough outer leaves and the root end)
  • 1 thick slice peeled ginger root
  • 1 tbsp coriander seeds
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp shrimp paste (kapee)
Preparation
  • Dry roast corinder seeds and cumin seeds until fragrant over low flame in a heavy bottom pan (be careful not to burn). Set aside. See a more detailed explanation of dry roasting spices.
  • Pound in a mortar and pestle or process in a small blender/food processor container in the following order: dried chiles, sea salt, shallots, garlic, galangal, lemon grass and gingerroot. Process or pound until smooth but some small pieces can still be seen.

  • Now add the roasted spices and curry powder. Process or pound again until the seeds are completely broken up into powder and the paste is blended through. Last add the shrimp paste and gently blend in, using the mortar or processer.

Notes & tips

Note 1: 

  • Cardamom is the dried, unripened fruit of a ginger-like plant. The capsule-shape pods need to be squashed with the flat blade of a knife or pounded in a mortar and pestle (known as bruising) to expose the tiny, brown, aromatic seeds which are slightly pungent to taste. If the pods are unavailable, seeds and ground cardamom are readily available in the supermarket spice aisle.
Note 2
  • The tamarind tree's fruit is a primary 'sour' flavouring. Tamarind pods are available, however tamarind paste (brown) and concentrate (black) are more convenient. Tamarind concentrate requires no preparation and provides a fruity, sour flavour with just a hint of sweetness. Lime juice is a suitable alternative.
