How To Make Thai Red Curry with Vegetables
Prepare this Thai red curry for a spicy, savory dish that is made creamy with coconut milk and flavored with sriracha and red pepper flakes.
To cook the rice, bring a large pot of water to boil. Add the rinsed rice and continue boiling for 30 minutes, reducing heat as necessary to prevent overflow.
Remove from heat, drain the rice and return the rice to the pot. Cover and let the rice rest for 10 minutes or longer, until ready to serve. Just before serving, season the rice to taste with salt and fluff it with a fork.
To make the curry, warm a large skillet with deep sides over medium heat. Once it’s hot, add the oil.
Add the onion and a sprinkle of salt and cook, stirring often, until the onion has softened and is turning translucent, about 5 minutes.
Add the ginger and garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds, while stirring continuously.
Add the bell peppers and carrots. Cook until the bell peppers are fork-tender, 3 to 5 more minutes, stirring occasionally. Then add the curry paste and cook, stirring often, for 2 minutes.
Add the coconut milk, water, kale, and sugar, and stir to combine. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat.
Reduce heat as necessary to maintain a gentle simmer and cook until the peppers, carrots and kale have softened to your liking, about 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove the pot from the heat and season with tamari and rice vinegar. Add salt, to taste.
Divide rice and curry into bowls and garnish with chopped cilantro and a sprinkle of red pepper flakes.
