Shrimp in Yellow Curry

The main dish for the Thai theme kitchen made in the Richmond Community Kitchen is Shrimp in Yellow Curry.

You can use chicken for this recipe but make sure the chicken is properly cooked.

We served the shrimp in yellow curry with white basmati rice. You can check on how to cook the basmati rice here. The cooking time may be less white basmati rice than the brown basmati rice.
