What would you like for dinner? Not Thai food… said no one ever!

These little babies simply get everywhere and the kids don’t like them, and neither do I if I’m completely honest.

It’s done in under 5 minutes thanks to the mighty Thermomix and is packed with awesome flavours. 

Believe me, you will notice a huge difference with shop bought stuff. 

This Thai red curry paste Thermomix recipe can be kept for up to 6 months in the fridge or divide into 4 portions and freeze. You will use it as the base of many dishes, such as soups, curries and stir-fries.

Delia Smith’ Thai chicken with lime and coconut cream – adapted for the Thermomix

This is definitely in our top 10 all-time favourite recipe.

We came across it in a supermarket TV ad probably about 7 or 8 years ago.

We’ve made it since more times than I care to count, for dinner parties, family dinners, with chicken (as per this recipe) but also with prawns or even white fish. But never in the Thermomix… until last night!

It’s always been just wonderfully delicious and hard to believe it is as simple as it is to put together and that is still very much the case with a little help from Momo!
