Thai Panang Chicken Curry


         Today I would like to share this amazing recipe that I prepared using my homemade Panang Curry Paste. As mentioned earlier, I had the opportunity of relishing this dish recently and really fell in love with it. 

          It has such an intense and aromatic flavour, coming from the lemon grass, kaffir lime leaves and the coconut milk. The gravy has a creamy consistency and is spicy, sweet and sour. It is best relished with plain steamed rice. So check for a step by step method with pictures to prepare this Oriental delicacy.









Thai Panang Curry Paste - 


  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 5-6 garlic cloves
  • 1" galangal / ginger, sliced
  • 8-10 dry red chilies, soaked in water for 10-15 minutes
  • 1/4 cup coriander roots, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. lime zest
  • 1 lemongrass (bottom part), sliced
  • 4-5 kaffir lime leaves
  • 1/2 tsp. shrimp paste (opt)
  • 2 tbsp. fried peanuts, powdered
  • 1 tsp. roasted coriander powder
  • 1 tsp. roasted cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper powder
  • 2 tbsp. tomato ketchup 
  • 1 tsp. tamarind paste

           Blend all the above mentioned ingredients to a smooth paste by adding required quantity of water. Store in an air-tight container to be used later.
