There's no shredded coconut here unless you get an inkling to add some. The coconut mentioned in the name refers to the coconut milk added to this red curry recipe. Coconut milk and a bit of peanut butter smooth out the bold curry flavor, making this one of our favorite-ever chicken curry recipes. Three kinds of veggies and a scoop of brown rice complete the 40-minute meal.
Thai Green Curry Chicken
Here's an easy curry recipe you'll make again and again, thanks to the slightly sweet green curry paste sauce and the mere 35 minutes it takes to make. Start by stir-frying some veggies, add in bite-size pieces of chicken thighs and your sauce, then serve with rice, coconut, and cilantro. That's it! Dinner for four is served.
Thai Green Seafood Curry
Here's your new favorite way to eat seafood—in a curry recipe! Shrimp and/or scallops make an elegant protein choice with the usual curry recipe ingredients. Thanks to the quick-cooking seafood and speedy stir-fried veggies, this easy curry recipe is ready to serve in just about 35 minutes.
Indonesian-Style Beef and Rice Bowls
We call it a rice bowl, but with red curry paste, coconut milk, rice, and veggies, it eats very much like a curry recipe. But instead of sautéeing the veggies, you add them raw for maximum crunch and freshness. We used ground beef instead of chicken or pork. It's a fun take on an easy curry recipe you can whip up in 45 minutes.
Chicken Curry Skillet with Rice Noodles
If you're feeling so rushed you can't imagine also cooking up a side of rice or pasta to serve with your chicken curry recipe, here's an option for you—rice noodles that cook simply by soaking in water, no boiling water needed. While your noodles soak, skillet-cook your chicken and veggies. Then, in the same skillet (there's only one pan to clean!), make your curry sauce. Add everything back to the skillet to boil for a few minutes so all the elements of your one-dish meal are hot.
Coconut Salmon Curry
This seafood curry recipe is a fun spin on the usual pork or chicken. Flaky salmon compliments the usual peppers, carrots, and ginger. Add a small can of pineapple chunks for unexpected tropical flavor. In about 30 minutes you'll be savoring a heart-healthy curry recipe full of fiber and protein.
Thai Cauliflower Curry
Going meatless? No problem! We have a curry recipe for that. While fish sauce and chicken broth keep this veggie-forward dish from being vegetarian, you could easily swap vegetable broth and soy sauce to make it one of your new favorite vegetarian curry recipes. The cauliflower and zucchini help make the dish heartier. For more texture variety and a bit more protein, sprinkle with peanuts before serving.
Butternut Squash and Chickpea Curry
Wanting to incorporate vegan meals into your diet more often? Ease your way in with this vegan curry recipe that gets loads of fiber from butternut squash and chickpeas. The chickpeas help increase the protein content, too. Combined with vegetables, coconut milk, curry paste, and cilantro, it creates a slightly sweet and spicy meal.
Thai Pork and Vegetable Curry
You choose the curry flavor you like best in this skillet dinner. The recipe simply calls for bottled curry paste, so use what's in your pantry or buy your family's favorite flavor on your grocery run. Then combine it with a succulent pork tenderloin, veggies, and a side of orzo for a change from the usual rice. Serve with lime wedges and/or sprinkled with herbs to amp up the freshness.
Mango Chicken Curry Skillet
This has got to be hands-down our easiest chicken curry recipe. Only 7 ingredients and about a half hour to make, it's a weeknight wonder that dirties only one pan. Mango offers delicate sweetness to the healthy curry dish.
Quinoa and Curried Shrimp
Just a small dose of orange juice adds unmistakable bright citrus flavor to to this take on a shrimp curry recipe. Fresh pea pods make a delicious stand-in for the usual peppers found in curry, and quinoa is a good protein substitute for rice. Give this less-than-traditional take on curry a try. We think you'll like it!
Indian-Style Lamb Curry
Take everything you think you know about what goes in a curry recipe and throw it out the window to create this Indian-style curry with lamb. This curry recipe features curry powder, meat, and a variety of vegetables, but omits the classic coconut milk and is also flavored with apple juice. You can skip the side dishes with so many food groups already accounted for in the main recipe.
Coconut-Curry Noodle Bowl
This recipe is more of a soup than a curry, but it's so easy and delicious we just had to include it. One saucepan does all the work of marrying the flavors of veggies, coconut milk, curry powder, spices, and chicken so you're left with only a single pan to clean. You'll enjoy a healthy curry recipe that's ready in under a half hour!
