Thai Red Curry Recipe (Gang Dang)

Share This Recipe

This is a spicy and creamy red curry made with chicken and a variety of vegetables. It is super easy to make, and ready in under 15 minutes. We have used a pre-made red curry paste that we buy online as it tastes just as good and makes the whole dish much easier and quicker to prepare. We have also used chicken breast but you could substitute this with any meat or even tofu if you prefer.
