Thai Panang Curry

I’ve got a pang for Panang 😍

So, the team at @tescofood recently challenged me to make the most of my extra time at home by veganising one of their Fake-Away recipes ♥️⁣

They have *thousands* of recipes on their website but I had my heart set on the Panang as soon as I saw it 😍⁣

Panang curry, is a thick, creamy, rich curry usually made with chicken or beef, which originated in Thailand (despite some claims that it’s Malaysian) 🇹🇭⁣

Verdict? 🤷🏼‍♀️ Well, let me tell ya. I was SO impressed 👏🏼 This *miiiight* have just taken top spot as the best dish I’ve cooked during lockdown 🤤 ⁣

What beautiful depth of flavour this had. Creamy, rich, thick, just stunning. I decided to use regular tofu (not firm) in my dish and it worked an absolute treat ♥️ It soaked up the flavours really well. Stunning. I actually liked the dish so much that I cooked it again last week and added aubergine which worked well too 🍆⁣
