Vegetarian Yellow Curry ( Gang Boom Bia Jay )


If you see 'jay' in a recipe name, it usually means vegetarian. This is a typical curry dish, if you've been visiting this site a lot, you'll know how these dishes work. Coconut milk to soften them, curry paste to spice them, tamarind to add a sour note, fish sauce to add salt. The rest of the ingredients are the bulk of the dish, in this case vegetarian ingredients.

225 ml Coconut Milk
1 Tablespoon Yellow Curry Paste
10 gms Onion
20 gms Cherry Tomatoes
20 gms Mushrooms
20 gms Green Bean Or Green Peppers
20 gms Baby Corn
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
2 Tablespoons Sugar
50 ml Tamarind Juice
1 Tablespoon Soy Sauce
50 gms Tofu

1. Place coconut milk into a sauce pan put over a medium heat and bring to the boil.
2. Add the curry paste and stir in.
3. Add all the remaining ingredients and bring back to the boil.
4. Serve immediately, don't over cook vegetables, it's not necessary, they should be crunchy and nearly raw!

Serve With
Fragrant Rice
or a Baked Potato

This recipe, although perhaps quite nice, is NOT vegetarian because it has fish sauce. Would be appreciated if you amend your recipe, or not label it as vegetarian.

[Appon]It's corrected now. By the way, if ever you see a dish you like, whose only non vegetarian ingredient is fish sauce, substitute soy sauce. Thai's often use fish sauce just for the saltiness and soy can be used for that.
