    Chicken curry is one of my favorite Thai dishes. I used to make it all the time, when I could find a packet with the curry and fish oil. This looks recipe makes me want to try cooking it once again.

    Curry is one of my favorite recipes because you can choose to have it with all veggies or you can choose to add in protein, like chicken! It’s full of flavor as well and it’s quite healthy too. Thanks for this simple recipe!

    This sounds delicious, so nice to see a from-scratch recipe rather than using a sauce jar/packet. Will have to see if i can veganise it. Thanks for sharing.
