Thai Yellow Curry For T

    T for Thai cuisine,Thai cuisine is one of the most popular cuisine all over the world. Thai cuisine is mainly divided in to regional cuisines, corresponding to the four main regions. Thai culinary traditions and cuisine are very much influenced by regional and neighbor's. Thai meals typically consist of rice as main dish with many side dishes. Thai curry is one of those side dishes, but these curry are in two different way one like a stew which contain coconut milk and cream with meat or vegetables. this type of curries are popular in central and west Thailand. the other one is dry means stir fries. These Thai curries are much different from Indian curries. Thai curries include lemongrass and lime leaves and shrimp paste which we don't use in Indian curries.
to day my recipe is one of those curries which is well known as Thai Yellow Curry. There are many variations for this yellow curry. this is most popular in west and south regions specially Muslim cuisine. In southern Thailand this dish is known as Kaeng som means sour curry. this recipe contains tamarind, fish and vegetables. The other yellow curry contains coconut milk and coconut cream. But this Yellow curry is much popular out side Thailand other then in the country.
Thai Yellow curry is normally served with steamed rice or round rice noodles.
