Thai Vegetable Red Curry (Vegan Recipe)

By Pavani @napavani
Today's dish is a spicy, creamy & slightly sweet Thai red curry made with vegetables. I always have Thai curry pastes, both red and green, in the refrigerator to make quick curries, rice or even noodles. Make sure to check the ingredients on the store bought Thai curry pastes because some might have fish sauce or other seafood related ingredients in them. Even better, use the recipe for the curry paste at the end of the post for your very own homemade version.
Thai Vegetable Red Curry (Vegan Recipe) This recipe is adapted from 'Buddha's Table: Thai feasting Vegetarian Style' cookbook. I used the veggies listed in the recipe, but any vegetable can be added to this curry. Potato, mushroom, zucchini, baby corn, carrots are all good in here. It is great when served with some steamed jasmine rice.

Coconut Milk - 2~3cups

  • Heat 2tbsp oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the curry paste and cook for 3~5 minutes or until fragrant.
  • Add the veggies and stir to mix well with the curry paste.
  • Add 2cups of coconut milk and bring to a boil. Stir in the soy sauce, palm sugar and kaffir lime leaves. Reduce heat and simmer for 7~10 minutes or until the veggies are tender. If the curry looks too dry, add the extra coconut milk and simmer.
  • Taste and adjust the seasonings accordingly. 
  • Garnish with chopped herbs and serve with steamed rice.

  • Steam and seed the dried chilies. Soak them in warm water for 10~15 minutes or until soft. Drain and squeeze dry.
  • Dry roast cumin & coriander seeds for 3~5 minutes or until fragrant over low heat.
  • Traditionally this curry paste is made in a mortar and pestle. Each new ingredient is added to the mortar after the previous one is pounded, pureed and incorporated into the paste.
  • Alternatively, all the ingredients can be combined in a food processor and processed until smooth, adding very little water to facilitate blending.
  • Use as needed and store the leftovers in an airtight container in the freezer or fridge.
