Thai Yellow Coconut Curry With Mango


mango curry

I love the flavors of Thai food and Thai Yellow Coconut Curry With Mango delicious and is easy and fast to make.  The creamy curry is filled with sweet and spicy flavors. After you make the base curry sauce can be easily changed with the ingredients you may have on hand, substituting peas for broccoli, shrimp for chicken.  I think this will become a family favorite.

Thai home-made curry sauce contains many ingredients that are not readily available in many areas. When you buy your curry be sure to check the label. Many curries are filled with unnecessary chemicals and artificial flavors. My favorite brand is Taste of Thai. After you open the curry paste it will last well in the refrigerator for 3 months if well sealed and 6 months in the freezer.  This finished curry sauce will also freeze beautifully so you can have some available anytime.
