This sweet potato Thai red curry recipe is a savory, mildly spicy Thai-style curry with lemongrass, coriander, and Thai basil. Add your favorite veggies!
Curry. Just when I think I can't possibly love curry anymore than I already do – and we all know that's a lot – a recipe like this comes into existence. Thai red curry that tastes just like the stuff from my favorite Thai spot back in Indiana, only maybe a little better because I can make it at home.
Layers of deep, complex flavor. Savory Thai spice that builds slowly, warming you from the belly out. Juuuust thick enough to soak down into the rice and fill you up. That hint of sweetness every good Thai curry should have. This curry is what you need for dinner tonight and every night hereafter.
Before we get to the actual recipe – a couple of things about this red curry.
Most importantly, this is the kind of curry that ANYONE can make. After the veggies are prepped, the rest of the process is straightforward. Sauté. Add ingredients. Simmer. Add a few more ingredients. Simmer until done. Start to finish, this curry is done in under an hour. Bed of rice and summer rolls with peanut sauce optional.
This is also the kind of curry that doesn't require you making a trip to a specialty grocery store. I found everything at my regular supermarket right down the street. 🙌 Because you've got enough running around to do without having to drive all the way across town to find weird ingredients, right?
Now that we've got the specifics covered, go forth and make this magic sweet potato thai red curry for dinner tonight. And then put it on your Instagram story and tag me so I can see!Print
