Traditional Thai Jungle Curry
Jungle curry is my number 1 comfort food, I love spicy dishes to lift my spirits when the weather has been dark and gloomy. It's been so cold recently that I needed to light a fire in my belly!
Here is one of my favourite meals to make, a truly traditional Thai jungle curry cooked with pork ribs, Thai eggplant, pea aubergines and bamboo shoots. With the pork ribs, I normally buy them whole and use my big butcher's knife to chop them into smaller pieces. If you don't have a large strong knife, I recommend that you use a pork rib that is already pre-chopped into smaller pieces.
Thai vegetables can be hard to get your hands on and you won't find them in the supermarkets across the UK. The best places to go are oriental shops or Asian supermarkets, the larger the shop the more likely they will stock when you're looking for, but nonetheless have a visit and see what you can find. 100% there will be palm sugar, which is an essential ingredient in Thai cuisine.
