Thai Fish Red Curry

Thai Fish Red Curry

This week is kind of boring for me !! How about you all how is this week treating you. No big surprises at work and same old routine. I thought of making it interesting and started to plan for Shweets birthday which is next month. Now she is all big and says "Why do you have to invite your friends to my birthday, it should be celebrated with my friends" ok that makes sense. So this time it is going to be a kids only party with cake and pizza. Shweets already has made a list of friends she is planning to invite. I think boys of her age never bother about birthday's atleast that's what I hear. It is just another day. So next three weeks will be super exciting with all the party planning !!

Coming to the recipe, Thai cuisine is one of our favorite choice apart from the Indian food we love. We try lot of the recipes and this red curry is always a big hit. It is simple to make and tastes so good. We had made the red curry with chicken and always pure vegetarian and wanted to try our hands with the fishes. It turned out well and we are defintely making it again. I'm sure what is the suthentic way of making this curry and did not bother to spend time on it. One of the comeents from Shweets was it is tasting like Thai restaurant food. That makes it all, try it and enjoy it !!
