Red Curry with Chicken and Avocado + Jasberry Rice Pudding with Mango


by Myles Katherine ❤

Curry is one of my favorite dishes to make because you can improvise using whatever vegetables you have in your house. I could hardly wait to try the Red Curry from my Try the World Thailand Box (read more about Try the World here) because I’ve heard such great things about it. For dessert, Jasberry Rice Pudding with sliced mango. My sister made the Jasberry Rice Pudding with Banana slices earlier this week. If you don’t want to sign up for the subscription boxes, you can still order these ingredients (like the Jasberry Rice and Nittaya Curry Paste) from their online store!

I adapted the recipes to serve 2 instead of 4, and used chicken instead of beef. I also didn’t have fish sauce so I used soy sauce for the salty flavor. 🙂

RED CURRY WITH CHICKEN AND AVOCADO

Ingredients:

From the Try the World Thailand Box

– 2-3 TBSP Nittaya Thai Curry paste (can be substituted with other curry pastes)
– 1 cup cooked Jasberry rice (can be substituted with white or brown rice)

From Your Pantry

– 1 14.0z can of coconut milk
– 1 TBSP soy sauce or 1 TBSP fish sauce
-2 TBSP Tamarind Concentrate or 1/2 TBSP Tamarind Paste
– 1 TSP sugar

Fresh Meat & Produce:

-4 Fresh Kaffir Lime Leave (optional)
– 1 Russet Potato, peeled and diced
– 1 Sweet Potato, peeled and diced
– 1 Large Carrot, cut lenthwise and sliced 1/4 inch thin
– 1/4 cup basil (with stems)
– 1/2 pound boneless white chicken, sliced
– 1/4 small onion, thinly sliced
-2 cloves of garlic, chopped
– 1/4 red bell pepper, sliced, for garnish
-1/2 avocado, diced

Directions:

  1. Heat a skillet over moderate heat. Combine 3 to 5 tablespoons of the thick coconut cream from the tops of the can with the curry paste and lime leaves. Transfer to a pot and cook until fragrant and browned, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add the remaining coconut milk and bring to a boil. Add the potatoes, carrots and basil leaves and continue to boil until reduced by a quarter, 5 to 10 minutes.

3. Add the chicken, onion, garlic, soy sauce or fish sauce, tamarind concentrate and sugar. Reduce the heat and let simmer until the chicken and vegetables are cooked through, about 20 minutes.

4. Add the avocado and mix in until warm. Transfer to two plates, garnish with bell peppers, and serve with the cooked rice.
