Thai Crab Curry

Thai crab curry is a popular crab dish characterized by a rich flavor and incredibly pleasant consistency. This yummy recipe embodies the tradition of Thai cuisine.

The origin of this famous dish Boo Paht Pong Karee dates back to 1969 when the Somboon Seafood restaurant introduced it to local diners.

In Thailand, this dish is most commonly cooked with entire sections of crab in the shell. Almost every recipe for this classic Thai dish adds oyster sauce, nam prik pao, white pepper, egg, fresh chilies and Chinese celery. Unlike other Thai dishes, fried curry crab is more sweet than spicy. It often uses red curry paste cooked with coconut milk and a blend of herbs and spices.
