Prior to this curry recipe, the only curry I’d make is the Japanese curry from a box. Yes, A BOX! Glico’s curry is so convenient and yummy! However, I wanted to make curry from scratch. So I started off with this easy Thai Yellow Coconut Curry with Mango recipe from Minimalist Baker. Since Mr. Chau is a carnivore, I added chicken breast to the recipe and made a few tweaks so it’s not too spicy for me. I even tried making it with tofu instead of chicken and apples instead of mango. It tasted just as good! So go ahead and explore other protein and fruit combinations!
I ate mapo tofu a lot when growing up but never learned how to cook it. In fact, it wasn’t until a year or so ago that I took an interest in cooking Chinese food. If I knew that mapo tofu is so easy to make, I’d have learned how to make it sooner! Could you believe that with only a few ingredients and some pantry items, you can make a delicious dish that goes well with rice?
Hey there, I’m Jan. I have a major sweet tooth and believe the best way to experience different cultures is through the stomach. The kitchen is my playground where I try to recreate some of the delicious dishes I ate. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy reading my travel and dining stories!
PS: I’m slowly migrating my recipes from my old site so check back often. 🙂
