Thai Brown Curry Shrimp with Vegetable Stir Fry

May 21, 2014 (Last Updated: May 11, 2018)

Thai Brown Curry Shrimp with Vegetable Stir Fry is inspired by my two lovely friends Li Li and Su who are connoisseurs of Thai Food. The recipe is one they were given by a wonderful friend of theirs, so it has passed a few hands over the years. It combines a Rich and Tasty Curry Sauce with Shrimp, Broccoli Red Peppers and baby corn served with Jasmine rice.

Curry is a favored dish in Thai restaurants throughout the world. Based on a Rich and Delicious paste of fresh and dried herbs and spices, curry is unique and unlike any dish in American cuisine. Curry can be defined as a savory, stew-like dish flavored with herbs and or spices.

Curry is considered native to India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and South East Asia. The method of cooking was brought to South East Asia by the Indian immigrants over several centuries.

There are dozens of different types of curries throughout Thailand varying by the use of various types of curry pastes, the addition of coconut or water and different combinations of meats, herbs, vegetables, and fruits.

The key ingredients in the majority of Thai curry pastes are mostly wet and fragrant: fresh chilies, lemongrass, galangal, garlic, shallot, kaffir lime, cilantro roots, and shrimp paste. These herbs and spices are appreciated not only for their taste but also for their medicinal qualities.
