Thai Tofu Stir-Fry

March 26, 2019

Thai Tofu stir fry serving presentation

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.

Chicken Khao Soi or Chiang Mai Curried Noodles
Chicken Khao Soi

July 01, 2022 1 Comment

I firmly believe that Khao Soi should be ranked as one of the world's great dishes. You can call it a curry or you can call it a noodle soup and it is both of those with more on top, literally on top! A broth of aromatic curry paste and orange-tinged coconut milk with tender chicken falling apart for you, boiled noodles lurking underneath and becoming coated with fragrant oil as they break the surface. Crispy noodles on top you can manipulate and dunk into the sauce,

This is a totally delicious way to serve roast chicken as well as being very simple to prepare. Cooking a whole chicken this way is practised in various forms throughout Asia, sometimes pot roasted, sometimes over hot coals and with many different curry pastes. Often cooked in the home, rather than restaurants, which is probably the reason why many Westerners are not familiar with the dish. Well, now is the time to change that and I promise you that you won't regret it!

This is a dish that is incredibly easy and quick to prepare. If you have a bag of frozen seafood in the freezer and the whole dish can come together in the time it takes to cook the rice. Talking of rice, I find myself increasingly turning to black rice

Excellent Marinade

Tried this marinade with prawns and squid. Absolutely gorgeous. Same great quality as all the other mythaicurry products

Southern Thai Green Curry Paste

Amazing workout for the tongue

So simple to prepare and a joy to eat. Followed the recommendation of using quality coconut milk and fresh vegetables with the meat. Only took about 30 minutes to prepare with brilliant results. The heat didn’t mask the flavour so really pleased with this product.

Authentic Taste

Tried the Red Curry which is delicious and also the Hot Southern Thai Green Curry which certainly packs a punch of heat although not quite as tasty and flavourful as the Red. Pimped up with some fish sauce it is still very nice though. Will certainly order again

A lovely paste that offers a different option when entertaining

I really enjoy all of these pastes. They're so easy to cook and so flavourful. The yellow paste is lovely, and it's a great option when hosting guests as it's less common to find than red and green pastes.
