I’ve got an appetite for curry. The fragrant aroma of ginger, garlic, chili, coconut and turmeric is like candy to my senses. I don’t discriminate. Green curry bowls, peanut curry, slow-cooker red curry, Indian curry; asking me to pick a favorite is like asking me to pick my favorite episode of Arrested Development. I can’t & I won’t.
With all the options, I sideline yellow curry the most. It’s not that I don’t love it, but it tends to not have the same richness as green curry or depth of spice as the red variety. That is, until I tried the yellow curry at a hole-in-the-wall Thai joint in DC a few months back.
You know those meals that seduce you to have just one more bite, even though you’re past the point of fullness? That was this curry. Rich and creamy with just a hint of ginger and red chilis.
Like all good meals, I’ve been dreaming about this one ever since. So, into the kitchen I went to create my own yellow curry bowl.
Save this one for when you want curry in a hurry. Make a quick sauce by combining the curry powder, coconut milk and yellow curry paste. I prefer to use light coconut milk when I’m cooking at home but if you love the thick mouthfeel of restaurant curry then you’ll want to use a full-fat can instead.
Into the pot go the rest of the vegetables and a can of garbanzo beans for extra protein and heft. I won’t lie when I say it’s my favorite ingredient here. I really could just eat this sauce with chickpeas and be done with it but what kind of RD would I be if I didn’t include a least a few vegetables? Simmer, thicken and serve.

Do you peel the sweet potatoe before cooking?
Hi Mo, I don’t. In fact, I rarely do but mostly because I’m lazy 🙂 However, you are welcome to do so.
What is yellow curry powder ? I’m only familiar with Indian curry powders, but have never seen any Thai curry powders, just pastes or sauces of spice blends in coconut milk. Where do you buy it? Brand? Thanks!
Hi Sue- sorry for any confusion. I use Indian curry powder along with Thai curry paste. I think the layering of spices makes this dish so yummy; and they complement each other!
I don’t think you mention where you buy your curry powder.
Hi Dan, this is the brand that I like and can easily find at the International store near my house. Of course- there’s always the internet if you can’t find a pasta in your grocery store! https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005NU4X9Q/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B005NU4X9Q&linkCode=as2&tag=deliciknowle-20&linkId=LUAN4EW5QV76KGRY
Where does the lime come into play?
Right before serving, stir it in. Thanks!
Is this supposed to be vegan? Because that curry paste has fish in it
Hi Dominic, unless they changed the formula, that curry paste does not contain fish sauce. Here is the ingredient list I found for the brand I recommended: Dried red chilli, Shallot, Garlic, Soybean oil, Sugar, Salt, Fresh turmeric, Lemongrass, Spices (coriander seeds, cumin, cardamom, cinnamon, bay leaves, lesser galangal, cloves), Galangal, Curry powder (mustard, cumin, coriander, fenugreek, wheat flour, chilli, pepper, fennel, turmeric), Kaffir lime. It’s not gluten-free, but it doesn’t contain animal products.
I’ve been totally craving a curry lately! These photos are totally making me hungry! Also, I just went to the W and 8th farmers market on Sunday, and I love it! Thanks for letting me know about it!!
