Kaeng Hunglay, or Kaeng Hung Leh, is a northern Thailand-style sour and sweet curried stew made with pork belly or other fatty pork meat that is quite different from the well known green, yellow, and red Thai curries. Kaeng Hunglay is flavored with Garam Masala, an aromatic blend of spices often used in Indian and Burmese cuisine, and doesn't contain coconut milk. The stew has the warm, sweet flavors of toasted coriander, black pepper, cumin, cardamom, and cinnamon, and a rich and hearty taste.
Panang beef is one of Thailand's most popular curry dishes. You'll know it from the distinct flavors of mace, cardamom, cumin, and coriander seed. It is delicious and creamy, not very spicy, and quite easy to make up for a quick and easy one dish meal with the steamed rice.
This Kaeng Matsaman Gai, or Massaman Chicken Curry, is made with the home prepared curry paste that I made previously. The paste does quite well in the freezer so you will always have some when needed. Watch me as I prepare this delicious chicken curry, flavored with toasted spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and coconut.
This very special Thai red curry features oven-roasted chicken that is slowly simmered in a thick, sweet, and rich sauce made with fresh Longan fruit, Pineapple, Coconut Milk, and a delicious array of traditional herbs and spices. Longan, known as Lum Yai in Thailand, is one of our prized fruits grown in selected areas of northern Thailand.
In this recipe we use our own homemade basic curry, so the dish is loaded with beautiful bits of red, brown, green, and yellow color. The flavor is is that of slightly sweetened coconut and fresh lemongrass, kaffir lime, galangal, and coriander root.
