Thai Red Curry Sauce

Creamy, bursting with flavour and filling. Red Thai Curry suits a LCHF diet. I suggest making 4 servings of the sauce base, cool and store it and you can cook a beef, chicken or prawn into the sauce and have your vegetables on the side.

You can use broccoli stalks in this curry.

This recipe makes 4 sauce servings.
