Since I am travelling to Thailand in a few days, I thought it would be fitting to post an amazing Thai red chicken curry recipe. Theoriginal recipe uses tofu, however my Meat Eating Husband (MEH) gets fussy when I put that on the kitchen table, so I substituted the tofu for chicken breast. I also used whole wheat spaghetti noodles instead of rice noodles, but that is another personal preference. Enjoy this stellar recipe!

The Taste:
A variety of flavours will tantalize your taste buds while eating this meal. The coconut milk decreases the level of hot spices coming from the red curry paste. This curry is on the sweeter side, but still had a touch of salt, mainly from the soy sauce. The sauce reminded me of a piece of olive bread; mainly sweet with flecks of salt. The yellow and orange colour of the curry reflected the two most prominent spices in the dish: curry powder and turmeric. The flavour from the ginger was faint, but noticeable; like a much needed breeze on a hot summer day. I squeezed an extra bit of lime over my curry, which added a delightfully sour spin to the meal.

I’m beginning to realize that I cook bland food. I am learning everyday to use more herbs and spices. Ginger is a spice that I never have particularly liked. But after researching the medicinal properties of ginger, I thought I would give it another try. You see, ginger has been used for years in many countries to treat high blood pressure, upset stomachs, arthritis, and even to relieve fevers. Scientific research has shown ginger can help with nausea and motion sickness. In addition, some studies have shown ginger can also help with inflammation. I take ginger pills before I get on any boat or airplane. I find it helps with my nausea. Have you tried taking ginger before? Does it work for you? 

Knowing the medicinal properties of ginger, I have started to add small amounts of ginger to my meals. And, I love it now. It adds a subtle flavour that isn’t as overpowering as I once thought.
