Roasted Peanuts and Coconut Curry

Thai Peanuts Saute Curry
Thai peanut curry reminds me of Thai peanut Saute Glass noodles. Sweet and smoky roasted peanuts and mild coconut flavor gives this curry a very authentic Thai brown peanut curry flavor. Also, good news is, you do not need to buy any paste or curry powder from market. If your kids loves peanut butter, you already have main ingredient of this curry in your pantry. I have used shredded unsweetened dried coconut flakes in the curry but you can replace it with 4-5 tbsp of coconut milk or 2 tbsp of coconut cream. If you have sweetened coconut milk or cream then just skip the brown sugar I have added to sweeten this curry.

Savita's Notes:
I suggest you can just double the ingredients and make double quantity of curry. Just before adding Tofu and Red Bell Pepper, take out half of curry, bring to room temperature and store in refrigerator. curry will stay good for 3-4 days. On busy week nights, just boil 1 packet of rice noodles, saute with brown peanut curry and add grilled chicken. And you made weeknight Thai food night at home. Sounds so budget friendly.
