Additional ingredients

  • 200 g prawns (raw and peeled)
  • 1 tablespoon of tamarind paste
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 2 carrots, roughly sliced diagonally
  • 1 large potato, cut into cubes
  • 200 ml vegetable stock
  • 1-2 teaspoons fish sauce
  • 1-2 teaspoons sugar (to taste)

In a pan, fry the yellow curry paste in a little oil to release its flavors optimally.

Deglaze the mixture with vegetable stock and mix well. Add the tamarind paste, fish sauce and sugar.

Simmer briefly, then pour in the coconut milk to create a rich sauce.

Add the roughly chopped carrots and diced potato to the pan. Cook for 10 minutes until the potato pieces are almost cooked and the vegetables are well cooked.

Add the bamboo shoots and prawns. Continue cooking until the prawns are cooked through and have combined with the flavors of the curry.

Garnish the dish with fresh Thai basil and finely chopped chillies to bring out the flavors.
