Chiang Mai Pork Curry

by Nitsa Takhiansok

This curry is also known as Kaeng Hung Leh or Burmese style pork curry Thai curry = coconut milk, right? Not so actually. The definition of a curry in Thailand is far looser than it is in the West and there are many Thai curries where coconut milk is totally absent. Some of these curries are most definitely not to the Western taste, this is certainly not the case with this curry, and in fact, I would go so far as to say it is one of the most palatable Thai curries for a Westerner.

Thai Beef Massaman Curry Serving Presentation

Beef Massaman

by Nitsa Takhiansok

A Massaman curry will always be one of my favourite dishes. Rich and creamy and ideal for a feast. My problem is that when I feel like a Massaman curry I often find myself unable to decide between Lamb Massaman, Chicken Massaman or this Beef Massaman. Sometimes my decision might be influenced by the time available to me because a Beef Massaman should never be made with a lean quick cooking cut of steak. Instead, it benefits greatly by being cooked with a far tougher cut of beef that will requ...

by Nitsa Takhiansok

A few years ago I was in the Thai border town of Nong Khai which faces the capital city of Laos, Vientiane, just across the Mekong River, it was in a tiny but very popular restaurant there where I first tasted this version of Crying Tiger sauce.

Chiang Mai Curry Paste

Something different

Very different to usual flavours but worth a go - I did with slow cooked beef. High quality paste as always from Nitsa.

Massaman Thai Curry Paste

Amazing flavours

I have purchased one of each of the pastes, the massamam was the first one we’ve tried and it was fantastic. We can’t wait to try the others👌

Thai Yellow Curry Paste

Yellow Curry Paste

This paste was milder and more sweet compared to the red and green curry pastes but very tasty. I would definitely purchase again. The use of potatoes made a change.

Mild Thai Green Curry
Kerry Lecomber (Ipswich, GB)
Absolutely delicious!

Oh my goodness - I can't overstate how delicious this was. I made a pork version from a tenderloin and it was fragrant and had such a depth of flavour without blowing our heads off. It was my daughter's introduction to Thai curries and she is a complete convert. Thank you!
