I know the name sounds all impossible to cook at home! But this Thai dish (which only means Thai Yellow Curry) is the easiest to make at any Indian household, since it has a flavors borrowed from the Indian spices, in fact Kaeng Karee Kai (the famous chicken version of the same dish) is considered a fusion of Thai and Indian spices and loved all around the world. The recipe i have given here is my own version of this dish, but trust me it came out authentic and super yummy (one can never go rong when making Thai dishes) i think its mainly cos of the spices blending with coconut milk.. check it out…
