Coconut milk-free Panang is a rich and spicy curry with a unique flavor of kaffir lime leaves and the Panang curry paste. Although this Thai curry is usually made with chicken but pork or tofu can also be used instead. Light cream has been used to make the coconut milk-free panang, giving it a beautiful creamy texture. The flavors of the fish sauce and Panang-style curry paste are distinctive. The heat from the chilies is balanced by the cream and the Kaffir lime leaves add a tangy twist to the curry. A mouth-watering dish that requires preparation time of 10 minutes and 40 minutes of cooking time.
This curry is rich in vitamin A and C. Vitamin A is critical for growth and development. It is also necessary for good vision. Vitamin C, on the other hand, promotes strong teeth and gums.
