thai style curry...

An interesting curry from north of Thailand that combines sweet and hot with sour flavors. Normally, I serve the curry over soft boiled noodles and topping with crisp deep-fried ones.

I haven't made this curry for a while since Mark and I eat out a lot recently. Beside Thai food, Indian food is our favorite. We notice that there are more Indian restaurant established in the city this year.

As the curry tastes good with anything, I serve the curry over farro--just for a change. Cooking farro is complicated than cooking jasmine rice. Luckily, I have a rice cooker that can cook the farro. My life wouldn't be easier without it. It cooks any rices perfectly.
