Fiery Red Thai Curry

Wednesday was my 5th year anniversary and I agreed to cook any recipe that was given to me. It turned out to be...
"Fiery Red Thai Curry"

In a blender or food processor combine :
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup raw cashews
2 tbsp olive oil
1 red bell pepper, seeded, chopped
1 onion chopped
stems from 1 bunch of cilantro
4 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup chopped ginger root
generous tbsp red curry paste

Heat in a large pan for 10 minutes med/high heat
Stir regularly

Add :
1 cup veggie broth
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 pkg extra firm tofu, cubed

Reduce heat, cover, simmer for 30 minutes

Finally add:
4 chopped green onions
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
salt and pepper to taste
Simmer for another 10 minutes

Serve over rice!

There were a few ingredients from the original recipe that I couldn't find (lime kaffir leaves, Thai green finger chilies)/forgot (milk) but my version turned out amazing!

Original recipe :


  1. I will definitely try this. About how long did it take?
    Congrats on 5 years!

  2. maybe 45 minutes, but 30 of that you don't even have to watch it. Very easy!

    And thanks!
