*Please note that the word “cup” in any of my electric lunchbox recipe refers to the little itaki cup included with the lunchbox. It holds 40ml.*
I finally found Thai curry pastes in Walmart Neighborhood Store last week after I had to make my own (with missing ingredients!) green curry paste because I wanted green curry so bad. I got both the green and the red pastes to try. Some of the highly rated ones has shrimp paste in it and since I am allergic to shrimp, I’m glad the only brand available here, Thai Kitchen, is vegan. 🤗
Let the testing begin! I also picked up some coconut milk from Trader Joes. I see lots of curry in my future! ❤️
In the bottom bowl, place the following ingredients:
Beef, cut into small cubes (you can use any meat/tofu if you prefer)
Carrots, small half moons
Potatoes, small cubes
Green beans, cut into inch long pieces
1-3 tablespoon thai red curry paste(adjust to taste)
3 itaki cups coconut milk
2 cups basmati, rinsed and drained
2 cups water
3 itaki cups water in base (about 1 hour and 15 minutes steaming time)
The curry was delicious! The bottle has a 3 chili rating for spiciness, but it is not spicy for me, which is good as I want my son to be able to eat the same dish I cook. This test batch in the Itaki is all mine, though.
Love the fact that I can test recipes using this little lunchbox and make just enough for 1 meal. If I love it, I can scale up the recipe. If I do not like it, it’s just 1 meal. This dish is a keeper though! Hope you’ll try it and share if you liked it or not!
