8 regular size portions/4 massive North American size portions (yes we can be pigs)
What you need:
1 Yellow curry paste recipe <— click that link
30 grams Prahok (Cambodian salted, fermented fish paste)
1 Large white onion, medium dice
1 Large white potato, medium dice
150 grams Snake beans/Chinese long beans
400 grams Chicken thigh meant, medium dice
70 grams Roasted peanuts, crushed
30 ml Vegetable oil
300 ml Water
15 ml Chilli oil
Notes and substitutions:
This curry is always eaten with rice as in most dishes in South East Asia. Jasmine rice is the preferred rice of choice in Cambodia so you can cook 1 x jasmine rice recipe.
Prahok – This ingredient may be very hard to find but you can substitute belacan or shrimp paste
Coconut milk – It is important that you find good quality coconut milk which has 85% extract or more and without thickeners or emulsifiers. Most ones you find will be watered down. If this is the case, you may have to add double the coconut milk and cut back on the water in this recipe.
This recipe yields 4 – 6 very large portions to suit the huge North American diet, but you can basically half this recipe to make 4 smaller portions like they eat in Cambodia.
Snake beans – You can substitute this with regular green beans if you like.
We learnt this yellow chicken curry recipe from Baitong Restaurant in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
