We had some great Thai take out from Sweet Basil Thai & Sushi, when we stopped in Ceder City, UT. The great flavors stuck with us, and Aaron and I both wanted Thai when we got home, so I whipped this up yesterday…and now you can too.
First, you’ll need to head to your local asian market and pick up some Yellow Curry paste, 1 can of coconut milk, fish sauce & Sweet Basil Leaves.
You will also need, 4 carrots, 2 medium sized red potatoes, 1/2 yellow onion, 2T of sugar and 1 1/2cups of chopped cooked chicken (or meat of your choice). Dice all of your vegetables.
Place vegetables in a pot of boiling water for 7-10min, or until potatoes are tender. Drain and set aside. Pour coconut milk and curry paste into a large pot on medium heat. Stir to combine. Add 2 Tablespoons of both Fish Sauce and Sugar. Add chicken and vegetables, mix well. Chop up 1/2 cup of the basil leaves and add them to the curry mixture right before you serve.
Serve over rice, with chopsticks or a fork!
There is a bit of a bite to it- but its not too spicy at all. It was really really good! This recipe makes enough for 4 or 5 servings (hello leftovers!!!).
