If you have never tried chayote in your meals now is the time. This squash like vegetable belonging to the gourd family tastes similar to long squash if you have tried it and is rich in amino acids and vitamin C. I tried two recipes with chayote – chayote Thai curry with shrimp and Agua de Chayote (refreshing chayote juice served with lemon and agave nectar). You can very easily use chayote in salads, salads and curries. Do give them a try!
This is such an easy recipe but so so tasty. An absolute must for a hot sunny day. You can prepare way in advance and store in the refrigerator. Lychee was one of my favorite fruits growing up. I remember sneaking into the kitchen and stealing some whenever I could because if I waited till after dinner I would have to share with my siblings :S.
The first time I had absolutely awesome Duck Panang Curry was in Las Vegas at ‘Lemongrass’ restaurant in the Aria. If you are in Vegas, I highly recommend trying it out. I longed for it so much that I decided to go buy myself a nice frozen duck.
I always bought curry paste from the supermarkets as I was lazy to make it from scratch. But this time around I wanted to try the pure recipe made from scratch. And it was so so rewarding. Trust me making this curry paste and then using it to make the flavorful Duck Panang curry will change your life! Such a fragrant and flavorful recipe and in fact not so hard to make. All you need are the right fresh ingredients.
This is my favorite go to when I do not have much time, but am still craving for a delicious restaurant quality dish. Quick and easy with deep flavors!
