The Food Fix #1: Priyanka’s Weeknight Curry!Jump to Recipe
Guys, I’m EXCITED!
For the last few months I’ve been working on a video series called THE FOOD FIX where I interview actual readers of the blog and try to help them out with a cooking problem.
Each episode will feature a short interview with a reader and a custom recipe made by me! There are three episodes in the series so far and I’ll release a new one every few weeks!
If you like it, it would be awesome if you could subscribe to the Macheesmo Youtube channel so you’ll get new videos. This is my first real attempt at a video series like this so I’d love to hear what you think in the comments section!
Without further ado, here’s episode one!
Here’s the written recipe as well so you don’t have to take notes.
A video series featuring cooking problems from readers. In this episode we tackle a quick curry recipe that still has great flavor!
1) Slice chicken into thin strips. In a medium-sized pot over medium heat, add neutral oil along with ginger and garlic. Cook for 1 minute, then add curry paste, and continue to cook for another 1-2 minutes. It should be very fragrant.
2) Add coconut milk to the pot and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer.
Taste the curry and stir in more curry paste if you want it spicier.
3) Add sliced chicken to the simmering curry and cook for 8-10 minutes until chicken is cooked through.
4) Add sliced red peppers, soy sauce, and fish sauce. Simmer for another minute or two. Taste and adjust flavors to your liking.
Keep curry warm over low heat. Serve over rice (LEARN HOW TO MAKE INSTANT RICE) and garnish with peanuts, sesame seeds, and cilantro!

Hello! My name is Nick Evans and I write and manage Macheesmo. I started Macheesmo 11 years ago when I was just learning my way around the kitchen. I love to cook and love everything food-related, but I have no formal training. These days I focus on fast, accessible recipes with the occasional “reach” recipe!
I’ve posted almost 2,000 recipes on Macheesmo. For each one, I do my best to give full explanations of what I did and tips on what I’d do differently next time. I’ll bring up the tricky parts and the easy parts.
I hope you can find something and cook something!
