Red Lentil Curry Recipe Recipe. Restaurant-Style Tandoori Chicken In The Oven! Recipe. Coconut Curry Shrimp. As I lamented on Saturday, I completely forgot to throw a bunch of shrimp on the grill during our party on the Fourth, so wound up stuck with approximately nine million tons of the stuff.

Coconut Curry Shrimp

I wound up using it to my advantage, though, and making a handful of really delicious shrimp dishes. This scrumptious and exceedingly fast/easy curry dish was one of them. And man…was it ever good. First, get some rice going! I used Basmati, because I love the flavor and light texture…and I think it’s perfect for curries. But any rice will do! Just cook it according to package directions, fluff it with a fork, and it’ll be light and perfect and marvelous.

Next, throw some butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat… And throw in a bunch of peeled, deveined shrimp! Cook them on the first side for a couple of minutes, then flip them over and cook them on the other side. You just want to cook them until they’re opaque… Then put them on a plate and set them aside for a bit. Mince up some garlic… Trust me. P.S. Red Lentil Dal With Cabbage. When I’m looking for an easy but flavorful dinner idea, I often think of dal.

Red Lentil Dal With Cabbage

Served with a whole grain and some greens, it makes a delicious weeknight meal. This time I wanted to include a green vegetable right in the dal for even more nutrition, so I adapted a recipe from Madhur Jaffrey that combines red lentils and cabbage. I’ve given the dish more complex spicing, with the addition of mustard seeds, asafetida and fenugreek, but it’s still a mild-ish, kid-friendly dal. If you don’t have the asetfetida and fenugreek don’t fret, it will still be fine – but those spices are worth seeking out, as they provide a nice authentic Indian flavor. I served this dal with quinoa and a simple arugula salad with a lime and cilantro vinaigrette. Of course, red lentils are an excellent source of protein – without the fat of meat – and they’re rich in fiber, folate, Vitamin A and other nutrients.

By Rachel on July 15, 2011 I tasted Thai food for the first time when I was in college. I remember having Thai iced tea and loving how sweet and refreshing it was. Then I had tom kha gai and thought how unusual (and delightful!) It was to be sipping spicy, tangy, coconut milk.

And I finished the meal with a bowl of yellow curry, which was so similar in some ways to stews that I had growing up, but was really so different. The similarities were in the ingredients – chicken, potatoes, and onions – that form the base of a lot of western-style stews. Yellow curry is made in the same way that many other Thai curries are made.

You’re welcome to make your own curry paste, but the boyfriend and I have found that pre-made pastes generally work pretty well. I imagine that many “farang” are introduced to Thai food with yellow curry like I was.
