1lb. fresh crab meat

2 Tbs.mizuna (Chinese grocer)
1 cup loosely packed fresh mint leaves
1/3 cup lime juice
2 fresh long red chillies, thinly sliced
piece fresh ginger, thiny sliced
2 shallots, thinly sliced
2 tablespoon fish sauce
2 tablespoon grated palm sugar
2 teaspoon peanut oil
Lamb Yellow Curry
1 to 1.5 pounds lamb shoulder (chicken can also be used, cut into cubes or pieces)
2 1/2 cups chicken stock
1/3 cup onion (diced)
3 bay leaves
1 to 2 potatoes (cut into chunks)
1/4 cup fresh basil
3 dry chillies
1 fresh coriander use everything and chop
*4 slices galangal (Chinese grocer) (Optional)
*1 teaspoon shrimp paste (Optional)
1 teaspoon salt
* 2 kaffir lime leaves, finely shredded (Optional)
1 teaspoon Turmeric powder
1 teaspoon coriander seeds
1 teaspoon white pepper corn
1 teaspoon Cumin seeds
:Soak dry chillies in a cold water 5 minutes. After that, just chop them
: Heat white pepper corn, cumin seeds, and coriander seeds roast about 1 minutes ( for the flavor)
: Pound in mortar (the most essential cooking utensil in Thai cooking) or blend all the spice paste ingredients until smooth.
Gather the ingredients. Place stock in a large pot over high heat. Add the meat, onion and bay leaves. Bring to a boil then reduce to low, until you get a nice simmer. Cover or partially cover with a lid and simmer 40 to 80 minutes, stirring occasionally, until meat is tender or near-tender.
Add all ‘curry sauce’ ingredients, stirring with each addition. Also, add the potatoes. Return to a boil, then continue simmering 30 more minutes or until potatoes are tender. Stir occasionally.
Taste-test the curry, adding more fish sauce for increased flavor/saltiness, or more chili if you want it spicier. If too sour, add a little more sugar. If too salty or sweet for your taste, add a touch more tamarind or lime juice. If too spicy, add more coconut milk.
