Sometimes inspiration hits you like a burst of lightning! Other times, friends specifically ask you if you can make a “Synthia” approved curry. That’s where this recipe came from. I will admit, I have been having some trouble coming up with new recipes. I’ve created a few in the last few weeks that just didn’t seem post worthy. I am so incredibly glad that my friends (shout out to CJ and Mandy!!!) asked me to make this bad boy. Now, I am no curry expert, but I can shamelessly say that it is really yummy!!! I tried to use minimal ingredients so that the spices could really be the focus of this dish. While most curries are high in fat, this one utilizes very minimal healthy fats. Instead of canned coconut milk, I used boxed, which has significantly less fat. I also used a touch of sunflower seed butter to mellow out the heat.
This low fat thai curry is delicious right out of the pan, but if you let it sit overnight (in the fridge) and allow all of the flavors to meld together, it is OUTRAGEOUS!!! I think I can honestly say that I am obsessed with this recipe. It was super easy to make; perfect for anyone who isn’t confident in the kitchen. You can also level out the spices to create your personal perfect curry. I love spicy (I blame my husband) but you can easily alter the intensity of spice to your liking.
