This Thai curry uses no coconut milk! This recipe creates the most delicious chicken curry. It involves making your own curry paste, then using it to pan-fry the chicken, before water, tamarind juice and roasted peanuts are added.
Shrimp paste, fresh turmeric root, palm sugar and tamarind juice can be purchased at Chinese/Oriental speciality stores or online.
Excellent! Tastes delicious and very authentic - 16 Jan 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Delicious. I used ground chicken instead and basically mashed up the meat with the spice paste. I also added a spoon full of peanut butter because I didn't have quite enough peanuts on hand. It was an absolute success. Very delicious. - 24 Nov 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
