Curries are always a thing for me and one of my go tos.

I have some favorites like this Coconut Cream Pineapple Curry or the Lentil Chickpea Yellow Curry. But there are more, so feel free to browse around.

The beauty of a dish like curry is that it’s super flexible. You can use whatever you want, go for your favorites.

I used a mix of broccoli, mushrooms, peas, bell pepper, onions, and carrots for my vegetable mix.

What is Panang curry

Panang curry is often made with meat and fish sauce. So it’s obviously not plant based or gluten free.

Often you find chicken, or beef in this type of curry, but barely seafood. That’s how to make Panang curry in a traditional way.

Also it’s not common to use curry powder for any type of Panang curry. You really need and want a paste for the best flavor experience.

What does Panang curry taste like

It’s creamier than other curries such as green or red from the addition of peanut butter and coconut milk.

Most curries are made with coconut milk which is really rich, but adding peanut butter adds a new level of creaminess.

Panang is also a bit milder and it’s a bit sweeter than other curries.

That’s why you can add optionally a bit of maple if you like. I find it really compliments the other spices. But it’s totally up to you and just optional.

Where can I buy Panang paste

I mentioned you can also go for red or green curry paste, but the flavor will be a bit different and also the color.

It’s also delicious for sure, but I always recommend to get your hands on Panang curry paste to get the most delicious experience.

Almost every store carries them. But if you find yourself finding a hard time to get it, try online definitely worth a try.

How to make Vegetable Panang Curry

Heat a bit of oil, or go for vegetable broth if you like to make it oil free. Add your veggie mix and garlic to that pot. Fry all for around 5 minutes.

Next add coconut milk, peanut butter, and Panang curry paste. Season with salt and pepper, and cook for 8 minutes longer.

After 6 minutes, it’s time to add the optional maple syrup, lemon juice, and tamari to that pot.

Serve on plate or bowls with quinoa, rice, even potatoes, pasta or bread like this Easy Roasted Garlic Naan.

There’s absolutely no need to, it’s so filling on it’s own.

Note: If you plan to use the optional tandoori cashews, make them while the curry is cooking. In a small bowl, mix cashews with tandoori spice.

Heat a small pan and roast the cashews for around 3 minutes until lightly roasted. Be careful not to burn them.

Garnish the Vegetable Panang Curry with tandoori cashews or mix in, just if you like.

This makes an amazing and super easy to make dinner, lunch, meal prep, or an amazing dairy free option for work lunch.

Of the fact that curry is super creamy and not to spicy, it’s absolutely delicious for the whole family.

If you feel the need for more spiciness, you can always add more Panang curry taste. If you prefer it really mild, use less.

Can’t get enough of this. I’m a wimp when it comes to the heat of the curry paste, but I use your recipe as a base and adjust the flavors until it’s right for me. (2.5 tbsp of curry paste per batch is about as warm as I can manage!) I’ve been adding fresh ginger when the vegetables are frying. Love the addition of tamari, maple syrup and lemon juice. I’ve been enjoying this with tofu, broccoli, mushrooms, carrots, onions and peas. Thank you for giving this recipe “good bones” so that it can be so easily adjusted!

this was a perfect base. the addition of peanut butter and maple in place of coconut sugar is inspired and reeeally excellent. i generally eyeball everything so naturally ended up making probably twice the recipe. only diversions I made to the original recipe were to use freshly grated tumeric root and ginger root and kaffir lime leaves (3) sauteed with a mirapoix. As I realized I didnt have any GF tamari, I used coconut aminos and some himalayan salt to compensate and a fresh finely chopped jalapeno to up the heat quotient. then added a few handfuls of fresh thai basil and cilantro at the end because why not? but honestly, this is an easily applauded base. Ill be using this a quick reference for future curries...
