I didn’t care for the extra stuff you typically find at Thai restaurants like bamboo shoots and other stuff I couldn’t identify, so I decided to leave the bamboo out and just stick with bell peppers for extra fluff. You can go with a mixture of green, yellow and red bell peppers or just one color. Either works but I wanted to add some color so I went with all three. You can also go with either fresh or frozen, although I prefer fresh because I don’t like soggy veggies.

While I only decided to use bell peppers for this recipe, free to add whatever you like to fill out the curry. While I used bell peppers, you can go for bamboo shoots, eggplant, or zucchini and throw in some Thai basil leaves while you’re at it. The curry is versatile enough to adapt. Serve it with a side of rice like coconut rice.

And that’s about it. This will make a quick weeknight meal for two with plenty of flavor to go around. And the best part? It was pretty easy to make at home. Good luck and happy cooking!
