Mae Ja's Hints and Tips for perfecting your Thai masterpiece!

  • Taste test regularly and adjust the seasoning as you go along to suit your preference. to do this simply follow this:
    Too spicy = Add more sugar
    Too sweet = Add more fish sauce
    Too fishy / salty = Add more coconut milk / water
    Too wet = Add half a teaspoon of diluted cornflour
    Too thick = add more coconut milk or water
  • Explore different protein and vegetable options to personalize your curry.
  • Do experiment with the level of spiciness to your liking by adjusting the curry paste or adding chopped fresh chillies.
  • Don't rush the cooking process; let the flavors develop by simmering.
  • Don't check the spiciness on your infant children; this will only end badly for all involved!
  • Plate up the curry in your favourite bowl and garnish the top with a few drops of any leftover coconut milk and a couple of fresh basil leaves perched on top!
