Cashew chicken

Now you know my passion for Thai food, choosing between all Asian cuisines I always end up with choosing the Thai even though I look at all unsure a little when the Japanese options, instill in raw fish is my other passion about food!

First we will try to make it homemade, then with our pasta will prepare a delicious soup Gaeng Ped or simply the Red curry Soup.

This soup was voted the best dish of the evening in all thai dinners in which I proposed, so here I share it with you, I already know I’m happy a couple of girlfriends that eagerly await!

I must admit that I too the first curry paste I nailed her lead from London!

If you want you can try to make it your own by following the instructions you give you a result then you can use it a little at a time and kept it in a glass jar in the refrigerator, but if you don’t have time and want to do early can be found also in Ravenna at the jam packed ethnic shop in via Carducci of which did I mention that it offers different types!
