Hi all,

Apologies in advance if this as been covered elsewhere... I couldn't seem to find anything, though.

Just wondering if anyone has any recipes for thai, vietnamese, or malaysian curry powder. One of the three is called for in a recipe I wanted to try (belatedly -- http://www.nytimes.c...ng/071lrex.html), but I'm not having any luck finding recipes for the powder itself. I'd just as soon make it myself, rather than buying pre-made.

I have to admit I don't know much about curry powders in any of these cuisines (more familiar with Thai curry paste, but still relatively superficially), so any advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

That link to the NYT recipe doesn't work. A few more details about what you want to cook might be helpful here.

A recipe for a curry powder in a Muslim beef dish, in David Thompson's Thai Food, available on Googlebooks (page 241):

The only other Thai curry powder I know of is a particular curry powder used in Northeastern Thai cuisine, in the Chiang Mai region, for a pork curry called Hung Lay or Hang Lae curry. A recipe for that curry powder here (I haven't tried the recipe myself).

Oh, I'm sorry! Not sure why it doesn't work. In any case, the recipe is for Curry Mee, which I take it is a variant of Lhaksa (sp?). So, a curried noodle soup with coconut milk and chicken.

I'll check out your links in the meantime. Thanks for the help!

Here's the recipe. Your link didn't work because it had a few extra characters after the .html.

The curry powder is most likely a yellow curry powder--like madras curry powder or similar. It's similar to yellow curry paste without the wet ingredients. My dad usedd it for certain southern-influenced dishes. Here's an example of a recipe of madras curry powder. If you do a search for "Thai yellow curry powder" or "Malaysian yellow curry powder" you might find a recipe specific to those regions, but madras or similar would do fine.
