Thai Taste

Thai Taste is a range of authentic products that will help you rustle up a delicious Thai Feast in the comfort of your own home.  Using fresh ingredients, sourced locally in Thailand where it is produced, anyone can make and  enjoy Thai cuisine in minutes!  "Real Thai, Real Simple!"

I was sent an Easy Thai Red Curry Kit, a Yellow Chilli Sauce with Ginger and a Sweet Chilli Dipping Sauce to try out, from the range.

The Thai Sauces are store cupboard essentials which can be used to give everyday dishes a lift.  They can be used to marinade; can be mixed with mayonnaise to make a Thai dip; used as an ingredient or as a condiment.    The Sweet Chilli Sauce was my favourite.  It had a nice chilli kick but was not too hot.  I had it on a barbecued veggie burger.

The Thai Curry Kits are the perfect solution for making a quick and easy meal for 2-3 people. They contain curry paste, coconut milk and dried Thai leaves.  Everything you need, just add vegetables or Quorn to make a delicious Thai Veggie Curry!

I was sent the Thai Red Curry Kit to test out.  The box contained three little bags containing the ingredients.

I used Quorn Chicken Style pieces and peas to make an authentic tasting Thai Red Curry.  It was quick and easy.  This is how to make the meal.

Heat a tablespoon of oil, add a spoonful of coconut milk and the curry paste and fry for 3 minutes.

Add the Quorn and Peas and fry for 3 minutes.

Stir in the remainder of the Coconut Milk and simmer for about 5 minutes until cooked through.  Stir in herbs and cook for a further 3 minutes.

Serve with rice and enjoy.

The kits cost £1.99.  Much cheaper than a take out!  It was very tasty.  Not too hot, but rich and flavoursome with the Thai fragrance and aromatic taste.  It can be refrigerated and reheated on day 2, as the flavour is meant to improve...but ours did not last that long!

1% of sales are donated to the Duang Prateep Foundation in Thailand, a charity founded in 1978 grown out of the efforts of slum people to address the problems that confronted them.  Projects focusing on education, health, social services,  human development and disaster aid have transformed the lives of slum dwellers.

Taste of Thai products are available in Sainsbury's, Tesco, Asda, Waitrose and selected independent retailers.  They are also available from Amazon online.
