Recipe Name: Thai red curry
Book Name: EDC
Tweaking details: Next time I would use more paste, as it was a bit bland.  Would also use coconut cream as with the milk it was a bit lacking.
Review: Ok for someone who likes their Thai food very, very mild.  Easy to make (once you have made the paste in advance, as that's a little time consuming).
Score: (out of 5*) 3

I made this, but not as a paste to keep, I made enough to use that night as I didn't have enough chillies
These are my changes:

3 chillies
1 tsp turneric
5 shallots
2 cloves garlic
3cm piece ginger
no limes as I didn't have any, so instead used 4 kaffir lime leaves ( I keep them in the freezer)
2 lemongrass stalks
30g peanut oil
2 tbsp fish sauce
4 shallots

I then cooked this mixture after adding a small can of coconut cream.
I used the whole lot to make a Thai Chicken Curry and it was delicious, very authentic tasting.

I love to cook with wine. Sometimes, I even put it in the food.

Sounds very good - can just taste that refreshing mixture of ginger, lemongrass, lime leaf and fish sauce.

I made this as my first meal and it was really delicious. I did not have the ingredients to make the paste on hand, so I used the Ayam brand which tasted amazing. The sauce was a very lovely consistency (velvety and perfectly combined). I used the same amount I would have used on the stove top (a couple of desertspoons full). Just right. It fed four adults well.
Will definitely be making it again. I followed the recipe to the letter, being my first effort ! Grin

The recipe in the EDC says to use 600g of chicken - could I possibly up the recipe to 1kg of meat for the same amount of sauce??  Please help! Angela

I don't see why not, give it a go and see how things go. Don't overload your machine at anytime though.

I changed the amount of chicken once , , , only by about 250 gm - it didn't work for me. To get the best results it seems you need to stick with the suggested quantity in the book.
