Thai Ingredients

I'm going Thai... ;)
Went out and got all the bits I didn't have in the cupboard, namely coconut milk, palm sugar, fish sauce, fermented shrimp paste, galangal, lemon grass, coriander seed (and I also got some new dried chillis, my old ones were getting on a bit... ;) Thai Red chicken curry next week, from scratch... ;)

update - documenting this on hold now until my finger is better, but, following my instructions Flyingpops' has now cooked this *extremely* successfully for me, twice! Can't wait to have a go myself! It tastes wondeful! I err'ed on the side of caution with the chillis (the prescribed 10 seemed a *touch* on the adventurous side) but I'm confident I can cope with the power after the (5 chilli) experiment...So, recipe, pics and maybe some video in a couple of weeks time... ;)

Try the new "ethnic" aisle in Gatwick Tesco, it's a curry wonderland! ;) Did get a few bits from a little spice shop in Horsham though... ;)

There's also Wing Yip in Croydon which has a wide range of Asian ingredients.

I've been growing my own chilli. It's pretty easy, although the plants were indoors the whole of winter obviously.

Recipe, pics and vid would be good. Share the good stuff!

No probs Bigblue, just need to get out of this sling and we should be good to go! ;)
