Nam Ya Pork Curry
Nam Ya – one of the unknown currys in Thailand. The paste is made of finger root also known as Chinese ginger and pickled fish. If you never had this paste before you should try it. In Thailand the locals eat this curry with Thai rice noodles (Khanom Jeen). In our recipe we combined this traditional fish curry with minced pork and fresh vegetables.
Fry curry paste in ghee for one minute, add onions, and chilis. Fry for another minute.
Add pork, fry until golden brown.
Add coconut milk and vegetable stock, star anise, and lemongrass. Simmer on low heat for 15 minutes
Add potatoes, simmer for another 10 minutes.
Add zucchini and carrots. Simmer another 5 minutes.
Round the flavor with fish sauce, pepper, and salt.
Serve with thai rice noodles or jasmine rice, roasted peanuts, and fresh Thai basil leaves.
