Posts Tagged ‘Thai yellow curry’

I just love Thai food so tonight I thought that I would make a yellow curry.

I would normally use prawns for this dish but as I had bought some beef meatballs I thought that I would give them a try.

I used a ready made paste for the curry. Blue Elephant Yellow Curry Paste is one of my favourites so I used that make.





  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 12 ready made beef meatballs
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 70g of yellow curry paste
  • 400 ml coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tsp of sugar
  • 6 – 8 small potatoes, cut in half
  • 1 big red chilli, cut in half
  • 30 g cherry tomatoes. I used tined ones but fresh are probably better
  • Salt


  1. Add the oil to the inner pot over a medium heat.
  2. Brown the beef meatballs in the oil.
  3. Add the onions and let them cook for a few minutes until they start to soften.
  4. Stir in the yellow curry sauce and cook for 1 minute.
  5. Pour in the coconut milk.
  6. Add he fish sauce and sugar and stir gently to avoid breaking up the meatballs.
  7. Add the potatoes, tomatoes and the chilli. Stir very gently, you are trying to keep the tomatoes whole.
  8. Bring to the boil and put on the lid.
  9. Put the inner pot into the insulated outer container and shut the lid.
  10. Thermal cook without power for a minimum of 1 hour.
  11. Check and adjust seasoning if necessary and serve with Thai sticky rice which you can cook in the top pot if you have one.
