As you have probably already guessed from my website, I love visiting exciting restaurants and trying new dishes and cuisines. I have tried a whole range of ethnic dishes, from Chinese to Thai food and I have shared many of my experiences with you all on my website.
However, not everyone is lucky enough to have a variety of ethnic restaurants on their doorstep. This is why so many people love to visit food markets because there is normally a huge selection of freshly cooked foods from all over the world. If you feel like breaking free of your traditional Saturday afternoon activities – which normally involves getting your pals together to play Party Poker over a takeaway pizza – then visiting an oriental restaurant is just what you need to give your taste buds a real treat. Alternatively, why not try cooking your very own ethnic meal like Thai for example? This will get you more familiar with the type of ingredients used in Thai dishes. Below is a simple Thai recipe you are sure to enjoy cooking.
2 chicken fillets
1 sweet potato
1 red pepper
A can of coconut milk
Green Thai curry paste
A handful of Spinach
1. Begin by peeling and chopping the sweet potato. Boil in some water until they are almost done, then drain and leave to one side.
2. Then fry the chicken and the pepper and add in one teaspoon of curry paste. Next, pour in the coconut milk and stir well.
3. Leave to simmer for 10 minutes then add in the spinach and the sweet potato. Wait until the potato has finished cooking and the spinach has wilted before serving.
4. Serve with Jasmine rice and salad.
Tip: You can make this dish healthier by using skinless chicken. However, it may dry out more quickly so keep a close eye on it. You could also exchange the coconut milk for light coconut milk or even use low fat yogurt.
