Kaeng Tay Poe

by - April 08, 2013

Today's recipe is Kaeng Tay Poe (แกงเทโพ), a fantastic Thai curry with citrusy and mild chili favor. Kaeng Tay Poe is a tasty curry commonly found all over sidewalk pre made curry shops in Bangkok. This curry sauce is usually made with tamarind concentrate, coconut milk and red curry paste-- the combination that will make your taste buds sing. I really like this sauce because it 's creamy, spicy yet tangy -- full of favors  and tastes distinctively Thai.  I usually made this curry with pork belly but if you don't like pork belly, you can try pork butt. 

Making this curry is pretty simple with the instant red curry paste from the trusted brand like Mae Ploy or Mae Pranom which are easily obtainable in Asian supermarkets. Now go and get yourself   a bottle of fish sauce, palm sugar (or sugar as a replacement), coconut milk, water morning glory and you will most certainly have a decent bowl of this Thai curry.

We are all enjoyed this Kaeng Tay Poe very much and I hope you enjoy making and having this curry at your home with your love ones.
