Light Chicken Curry w/ Winter Melon – แกงไก่ใส่ฟักเขียว Hot Thai Kitchen!

Posted: Friday, April 07, 2017

Here’s a curry so good I can drink it….literally! Cuz what’s special about this is that it’s so light a brothy. Think comforting chicken soup, but with the flavours of a red curry. Winter melon absorbs the flavours like a sponge, which is why it’s such a popular vegetable used in curries in Thailand. And for hardcore eaters out there, there’s blood! Cubes of pork or chicken blood is not uncommonly added to curries in Thailand—a great way to add iron to your meal!
