Thai Tofu Stir-Fry

Thai Tofu stir fry serving presentation

Thai curry pastes are extremely versatile. Apart from their use in curries they are also used in stir-fries and marinades and many other dishes. In this dish I have used tofu but I could also have used thinly sliced meat or simply vegetables on their own. You can really experiment with this one and chop and change ingredients as you wish and still come out with a great result. I’ve demonstrated the use here with tofu because I think to get the best out of tofu it needs to be cooked in a particular way so that it takes on the flavour of the sauce.
Ingredients.
1 Pkt firm or extra firm Tofu
10 g Light soy sauce
10 g white sugar
Vegetable oil
1 lime
1 onion, garlic clove,chopped tomato
Vegetables of your own choice

I’ve used a firm tofu and because I’m not deep frying it I find it is sufficient to press it between some paper towels with a weight on top to remove most of the water.

Serving presentation for Thai Jungle curry
Thai Jungle Curry or Kaeng Pa

October 03, 2021

This is as fiery as it gets for a Thai curry, it is way more spicy than most people can handle. It is also one of the simplest Thai curries to prepare, Jungle curries, or more accurately, forest curries, were traditionally made with whatever was to hand so your choice of meats and vegetables comes down to whatever you wish to put in it.

Duck breast Thai red curry with pineapple
Thai Duck Red Curry with Pineapple

February 10, 2020 6 Comments

(Updated). Meltingly tender duck combines wonderfully with the sharp and sweet flavours of pineapple and coconut in a Thai red curry sauce. I’m not normally a fan of pineapple in savoury dishes (put it on my pizza at your own risk!) but it really does work with this dish. I used to cook this with duck legs but so many people have told me they prefer to use duck breast so I have updated the recipe to reflect that fact. This also has the benefit of allowing the breast to be served pink with the...

If you like hot & spicy then this is for you. I made this for the whole family (we all like spicy foods) and we were literally blown away. It’s not for the faint hearted!

Massaman Thai Curry Paste
Mona (Kensington, GB)
Tasty and authentic curry paste!

Full of flavour and complexity, this really is the most amazing Massaman curry paste! I've tried all of the My Thai curry pastes and they're all excellent but the Massaman is my favourite as it's so comforting, especially on a dark winter's night.
