Thai Panang Curry with Pork and Rice

Thai panang curry is one of the most popular curries to westerners and Thais. This panang curry with pork is an example of Kaow Rad Gaeng, the pre cooked Thai foods found in food courts or street food markets throughout Thailand.

My Thai panang curry is an authentic recipe, simply use readymade panang curry paste as the base ingredient and you may additionally add teaspoon of ground coriander seed, ½ teaspoon of ground cumin and 1 tablespoon of pounded roasted peanut when fry the curry paste with oil at the first step.
