Thai Tofu Stir-Fry

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.

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

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...

Delicately Fiery and delicious

We all really enjoyed this curry paste. It smelled amazing straight from the pack and even better once it had grown in flavour whilst cooking. This is a definite favourite that we will be having again!

Fantastic and a game changer

Absolutely great products which you just can't get the same quality in the shops.

Thoroughly enjoyed this curry, added some water chestnuts which gave a nice crunch. Found the site by accident and so pleased I did. Have tried several of the curries now and they never disappoint.
