So I made my Thaie Red Curry with tofu last night…followed the recipe (mostly) and was disappointed. It didn’t have much flavor! I added plenty of salt, the Thai Red curry paste, coconut milk…and it was just so-so. We added Thai peanut sauce to it and that helped, but I’m wondering why it wasn’t very flavorful. Any ideas? Here’s what was in it:
Mushrooms and fresh bean sprouts
3 tsp of red curry paste
1 cup of coconut milk
1 cup water
salt and pepper
cilantro and scallions
I went very light on the chiles because the better half didn’t want it too spicy. But heat wasn’t the problem…flavor was.
