Gang Ba Curry with Mushrooms

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Thai, Main Dish, Vegetables, Side Dishes

 Ingredients List

  • 10 oz Straw mushrooms
  • 1/4 c Vegetable oil
  • 2 1/2 tb Gang ba curry paste, see
  • -- recipe
  • 2 tb Soy sauce
  • 1/2 ts Sugar, optional
  • 1/2 c Oriental basil, chopped
  • 2 Kaffir leaves
  • 6 Red chili peppers, cut into
  • -- 4 or 5 pieces


If the mushrooms are very large, cut in half; however it is traditional not
to cut them in Thai cooking. Heat the oil in a wok over medium heat. Add
the curry paste & stir-fry until it releases its aroma. Add 3 c water,
mushrooms, soy sauce & sugar. Bring to a boil, adjust the seasonings if
necessary. Add the basil, kaffir & chili peppers. Mix gently & serve hot
with rice. NOTE: I make variations of this adding a bunch assorted, cubed
vegetables which I stir-fry for a few moments before adding the water.
Using the vegetables gives a main dish rather than just a side dish. Good
vegetables in this curry are: eggplant, zucchini, corn, cauliflower, bamboo
shoots (I'm not sure how Thai this ingredient is though).
