Veggies in Thai Red Curry

इस व्यंजन को हिन्दी में पढ़ें

Thai food is very close to Indian food and probably that’s the reason I just love it. There are plenty of vegetarian options in Thai cuisine. Thai red curry is one of the most popular curries. Usually the red curry paste is prepared in advance with shallots, garlic, galangal (a variety of ginger), lemon grass, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, and lots of Thai red chilies. This red paste is used in curry by adding coconut milk at the time of cooking.

For vegetarians and vegans, one can add a lot of vegetables like, onions, bell peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, celery, carrots etc. and one can also adjust the spice as per taste. I recommend you to either use Thai red chilies or Kashmiri red chilies to get a nice red color. This is a very delicious preparation and has a lot of colorful vegetables which makes it healthy also.
