Today’s dish is a spicy, creamy & slightly sweet Thai red curry made with vegetables. I always have Thai curry pastes, both red and green, in the refrigerator to make quick curries, rice or even noodles. Make sure to check the ingredients on the store bought Thai curry pastes because some might have fish sauce or other seafood related ingredients in them. Even better, use the recipe for the curry paste at the end of the post for your very own homemade version. This recipe is adapted from ‘Buddha’s Table: Thai feasting Vegetarian Style’ cookbook. I used the veggies listed…
Blogging Marathon# 48: Week 4/ Day 3 Theme: 1 Cuisine — 3 Dishes Dish: Thai Cuisine — Thai Iced Tea For the final day of this month’s blogging marathon under ‘Thai cuisine’ theme, I have a cold, refreshing Thai Iced Tea. I wanted to try a Thai dessert, but then couldn’t get my hands on the ingredients, so after a little search I ended up on this Thai Iced Tea recipe by Giada.
Blogging Marathon# 48: Week 4/ Day 2 Theme: 1 Cuisine — 3 Dishes Dish: Thai Massamun Curry After the refreshing first course of yesterday’s Green Papaya Salad, I have a spicy, sweet and tangy Thai Massamun curry today. This curry is very aromatic and flavorful and uses a variety of Indian herbs and spices. I thought the curry tasted a lot of tangy, sweet South Indian pulusu.

I’ve never seen fresh galangal or kaffir lime leaves in any of the stores that I go to, but luckily I found some canned/ jarred ones in Whole Foods that I picked up right away. They…
Blogging Marathon# 48: Week 4/ Day 1 Theme: 1 Cuisine — 3 Dishes Dish: Thai Cuisine — Thai Green Papaya Salad My theme for this week’s blogging marathon is pick 1 cuisine and cook 3 dishes. Valli gave us 4 countries to choose from and I went back and forth between Arabian and Thai cuisines, but finally ended up picking Thai. So for the next 3 days I will be posting 3 different courses of Thai dishes.
We are exploring the beautiful northern part of Thailand for this month’s ‘International Food Challenge’. Northern Thailand is blessed with the best scenery in the kingdom, it is the region with forests and mountains, rivers and waterfalls. It is the home to Thailand’s hill tribes, whose conventions and customs differ from mainstream Thai culture. Rice is the staple of this region and they use both ordinary and glutinous varieties. Food is seasoned with fish sauce and chili peppers. Our host for this month, Sangeetha Priya, gave us some amazing Northern Thai dishes to try. After looking through the dishes, I…
