Jungle Curry Recipe | How we’re celebrating National Curry Week at Thaikhun

National Curry Week is here kha and we’re crazy about curries here in Thaikhun. To celebrate, for every bowl of Jungle Curry ordered in our restaurants during National Curry week (9th ~ 15th October) we will donate 50p to Safe Child Thailand – a charity that supports orphans, refugee children, children with disabilities and vulnerable women in Thailand.

We’ve raised £37,000 so far which has helped feed kids all across Thailand and even purchase a Food truck – you can read more about the Food truck here.

Our jungle curry is our Chef Poom’s own recipe is very spicy and super delicious! Unlike most Thai curries, Jungle curry has no coconut milk as the dish originates from the forests of northern Thailand where they don’t grow coconuts.

Check the recipe below.

Top tip: You can find most of the ingredients in the ‘world food’ section in some supermarkets or in your local Asian food store.
