When it comes to Thai food, I usually order something like a noodle stir fry, soup noodles, curry or some sort of stir fried vegetables. Boooooorriiinnnggg. Well at least it’s more than just pad thai.
Morning glory is my favorite. Since I was in the mood for something healthy I was looking around for vegetarian recipes.
In my search, I stumbled, tripped and fell and got back up with this Thai Stir Fried Tofu with Green Beans recipe @ Serious Eats a dry curry stir fry!! Though I’ve spent a decent amount of time in Thailand I don’t remember coming across a dish like this before. So I thought this was interesting and worth a try.
The original recipe calls for making the curry paste from scratch. So if you feel die-hard for this dish I’d give it a shot. But for me as this was a dish I hadn’t had yet, I made some adaptations and used canned red curry paste to save time. It came out a true winner and wish I had doubled the recipe!!! It didn’t turn out that oily, salty or spicy. I think this is usually an issue when eating Thai food out. But since you are making this at home you have complete control.
I think its pretty versatile as a main dish or as an appetizer. I even ate it with Crab Fried Rice and thought it was a good pairing!
In the featured image, you can see I had a little bowl of curry. This was a yellow curry with chicken and potato. But unfortunately it was not a winner. Though most of the things I make are good, every now and then I put something together that was pretty standard and this was one of those times. So I won’t be sharing that recipe. My quest for a good yellow curry continues. If you have one, please send it my way !
