Thai Tofu Stir-Fry

March 26, 2019

Thai Tofu stir fry

Thai curry pastes are extremely versatile. Apart from their use in curries they are also used in stir-fries and marinades and many other dishes. In this dish I have used tofu but I could also have used thinly sliced meat or simply vegetables on their own. You can really experiment with this one and chop and change ingredients as you wish and still come out with a great result. I’ve demonstrated the use here with tofu because I think to get the best out of tofu it needs to be cooked in a particular way so that it takes on the flavour of the sauce.
Ingredients.
1 Pkt firm or extra firm Tofu
10 g Light soy sauce
10 g white sugar
Vegetable oil
1 lime
1 onion, garlic clove,chopped tomato
Vegetables of your own choice

I’ve used a firm tofu and because I’m not deep frying it I find it is sufficient to press it between some paper towels with a weight on top to remove most of the water.

Heat the pan add the pressed tofu and cook on a medium  heat for about 20 minutes, add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil and cook on a higher heat for five minutes browning the tofu.

Thai Fish Curry Serving Presentation
Thai Fish Curry

April 30, 2019

This Thai fish curry is simplicity itself. Made with yellow curry paste as it is here it is more typical of the fish curries of Southern Thailand and Malaysia owing to the light Indian spicing of the yellow curry paste. This could also be cooked in the same manner using red or green curry paste. Many Thai fish curries are not always compatible with Western tastes, often being cooked with fish heads and too sour for the Western palate. However, this is not the case with this version which is b...

Thai Yellow Crab Curry
Thai Yellow Crab Curry

February 23, 2019

This is actually a Thai dish that doesn’t scream I'm Thai! It uses evaporated milk in place of coconut milk and traditionally this is cooked with curry powder, a rarity in Thai cooking. Here we are using Thai yellow curry paste so maybe not so traditional but it makes the cooking easier and the outcome more certain as curry powders can vary tremendously. This is actually a pretty quick dish to prepare and cook so don’t be put off by the amount of pictures below, that is just me covering it in...

Thai Red Chicken Curry with Butternut Squash
Thai Red Chicken Curry with Butternut Squash

October 28, 2017

Thai red chicken curry with butternut squash is a classic and a great favourite of mine. The colouring effect of the squash results in a curry that is orange rather than red; however it is still very definitely a Thai red curry. And if that sounds confusing, what you have to know is that in Thai when we refer to a red or green curry we are talking about the colour of the chilies we use to make the curry paste, not the colour of the finished curry. You can chop and change the ratio of chicken ...

Excellent Service and Product

We love these pastes and marinades, they are all delicious, packed with flavour and truly authentic. Keep up the good work!

Best Thai curry pastes out there 👍👍👍👍

Having tried many other brands and allegedly fresh curry pastes, all the mythaicurry varieties that we have used, have proven to be the tastiest/freshest out there. Love the the cooking tips/recipes for each different Thai curry.
Can’t recommend enough 😁 👍

Amazingly rich curry paste

Having lived in London for a number of years now, I was delighted to stumble across this website. Nitsa's paste was reminiscent of the flavours used in Thai cooking back home in Southeast Asia - bold, complex, and really easy to use in daily cooking. It is a great find!

Nice taste

The red curry is a nice deep taste. I did use the wrong coconut milk so it could’ve been nicer, but the flavour came through

Green curry review

I bought these green curry’s having not had them before. I had previously tried the red and the panang curry. The green curry was great, not too hot but there was some heat to it and like the others was very aromatic. I will definitely be buying this curry again and was very pleased with it.
