Vegan Vegetable Thai Yellow curry recipe - Thai recipes - Gravy Recipes - Curry Recipes

I love Thai Recipes. Recently my first son also started liking Thai recipes. Normally my sis buys vegetarian red curry paste from US for me. However I wanted to try this Yellow curry from scratch. I searched thro' net. I have tried based on what I had and my preference. Our family is not a big fan of raw coriander seeds so I had used powder. If you don't have Red bird eye fresh chillies use dry red chillies. If you are using dried one soak it hot water for 30 mins before using it. I had this with rice as well as with Chapathi. Both went well. I have used homemade coconut milk. You can use canned coconut milk too
