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.
- 1/2 lb. chicken breast, sliced
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1 tbs. red curry
- 1 tbs. chili paste
- 1 tbs. chopped garlic
- 1 tbs. curry powder
- a pinch of turmeric powder
- 1 tbs. sugar
- 2 tbs. fish sauce
- 1 ts. lime juice

1. Pour the coconut milk into a pot, bring to a boil over medium heat.
2. Add red curry, chili paste, garlic, curry powder and turmeric powder. Stir for 3 minutes.
3. Add chicken, sugar, fish sauce and lime juice. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked.
4. Serve warm over farro.
