This recipe for curry has become one of my go-to recipes. I love how simple it is to prepare. After my workplace was flooded, lunch options became sparse.
I love Thai curry. Thanks to a co-worker who used to work at a Thai restaurant, she gave me an idea of how to get the flavor you need.

Thai Yellow Chicken Curry
How do you make delicious restaurant-style Thai curry? You use what the restaurants use. If you live near an Asian store, Mae Ploy Thai Yellow Curry Paste tastes just like a restaurant.
This curry paste is super easy to use, and it tastes incredible. I have used yellow curry paste numerous times in chicken curry and I have used it in a butternut squash soup as well.
This recipe contains a few simple ingredients. You will need some vegetable oil, yellow curry paste, vegetables, and coconut milk (soy milk will also work, but it won’t have the same flavor of coconut milk.)
If you like your curry thinner, you may want to add some additional chicken stock.
For this curry, I use potatoes, carrots, and onions. You could use other vegetables if you like.
This curry reheats very well. I have begun to take it to work and reheat it there several days a week.
I hope you give this Instant Pot Thai Chicken Curry recipe a try. It is so easy to make and I know you are going to enjoy this one.
