Malaysian Red Curry Thighs
Ingredients1 h servings 354 cals
- Place green onions, ginger, and garlic in a food processor; puree until smooth.
- Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Season chicken thighs with salt and cook, skin-side down, until browned, about 10 minutes per side. Remove from skillet.
- Scrape ginger puree into the skillet and cook, stirring constantly, 2 to 3 minutes. Add curry powder, red curry paste, garam masala, and Chinese five-spice powder; cook and stir until fragrant. Pour in coconut milk and stir to loosen up the bits from the bottom of the skillet. Add fish sauce and half the sugar. Taste; adjust salt and sugar, and stir in sriracha sauce.
- Return chicken thighs to the skillet, reduce heat, and simmer until flavors are combined, about 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
- Cook's Note:
- Substitute coconut oil for the grapeseed oil if preferred.

This is excellent the way the recipe reads and I make it that way a lot. But if you have extra stuff in your freezer you can add them. I added chopped carotts, peas and 1 cup mashed sweet pota...
The flavor was pungent, but not totally pleasing. We typically love this type of food, but I won't be making this recipe again.
Used 16 thighs. Winged it for Garam Masala. Used candied ginger. Will definitely make it again. One suggestion - prep all ingredients before cooking the thighs.
