Flatbread and curry belong together like Bert and Ernie, like nachos and guacamole or like peanut butter and jelly. So I’m making a simple and easy curry that goes great with the flavorsome soft vegan flatbread and is ready in 20 minutes. Are you ready to learn how to make a simple and easy Spicy Thai red chicken curry? Lets get started!
I make a lot of my ingredients from scratch but is cannot be a simple and easy curry if you have to combine a million ingredients. So the basis of this curry is a red Thai curry paste. Of course I also use a lot of fresh ingredients like onions, garlic, two colors bell peppers and spice. Garam masala is a spice that is made up of five different spices and really aromatic.
The star of this recipe is the chicken. I start by slicing it in into small cubes and combined with on table spoon of Garam masala. Put it in the refrigerator for at least half an hour but overnight will intensify the flavors even more.
I am in love with my skillet, if you haven’t got a skillet yet I highly recommend you get one because it is great to cook with. Start with heating the skillet and add 2 tbsp of vegetable oil. Sauté the onion, bell peppers and garlic until they are soft and translucent.
Then add the chicken and pan fry until nice and brown. Now it is time to add the red Thai curry paste. Stir it through before you add a little water so all of the curry paste and chicken mixture can be combined. When most of the water has evaporated you can perform the last step and that is to add the coconut milk.
Now let it simmer for a least 15 minutes so the chicken can become soft and tender. Cook some Basmati rice while the curry is simmering and warm the flatbread in the oven. I wrap them in aluminum foil and heat them for 7 to 8 minutes.
Plate it up and start with some rice, then add the flatbread and a big helping of chicken curry. So good so time to dig in. As you can see this is a great Friday night recipe which is made quick and easy. Enjoy!
