For some people cooking meat with vegetable is uncommon, but I do find mixing meat and vegetable very healthy. It makes the dish balanced and creates such an interesting texture. When I made this dish for my husband for the first time, he said it was strange. Now he loves it and he always enjoys it over a big plate of hot rice.
Chicken in Red Curry Paste with String Beans
Ingredients: (4 servings)
250 gm boneless chicken- sliced
100 gm string beans- sliced into 2 inches long
2 tbsp Thai red curry paste
1/2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp fish sauce
Few Kaffir lime leaves- optional
1/2 cup chicken stock or water
1 tbsp oil
Stir fry for few minutes until fragrance.
Add chicken and stir for 3 minutes.
Add string beans, sugar and fish sauce. Add chicken stock or water if it is too dried.
Cook further for few minutes and add few kaffir lime leaves.
Serve over hot rice.
I considered this to be healthy and balance meal. It’s not only nutritious but very tasty, too. Considering how easy it is to make, I don’t have any reason why you shouldn’t try it.
Have a wonderful day,
