Panang Curry with Tofu (Kaeng Phanaeng)
The Panang Curry maybe has its english name from the Malaysian island Penang. Nobody knows if this is right or not but we know that this creamy curry is not Malayian it is Thai. And like all other Thai Currys this vegan Curry is very easy to make. You just need some basic ingredients including the Panang Curry Paste.
