skinnymixer's Thai Red Chicken Curry

One of my favourite Skinnymixer’s has been nagging me for months to make a Thai Red Chicken Curry Thermomix recipe, and I finally tried my hand at it.First thing you might notice is that this Thai Red Chicken Curry is not a vibrant red like you might find from take away or a jar paste – that’s because I don’t use any additional oil in the recipe, or add food colouring… the good news is the flavour is all there and much healthier for you too.

If you love this recipe, you should definitely try my Thai Green Chicken Curry or some of the recipes in my cookbook A Little Taste of Asia.

When you have some Thai Red Curry Paste made up, you should also try the delicious Thai Red Chicken Soup.

I hope you love it as much as we did.
