Shiraz and Red Curry

Grant Burge Filsell Shiraz 2007 – Thai Red Curry Chicken

It has been a while, but the cellar was beckoning and we needed something to go with a spicy homemade curry.
Thai Red and Green Curry have become a staple dish, replacing the spag bol when I first moved out of home.

Grant Burge is also a staple member of our Adelaide wineries to visit list. Filsell though was never high on my tasting list, it doesn’t suit my palate when it is young. However the first time I had an aged one I realised what a good bargain it is. It gains character as it ages. Almost as much as my cooking.

Homemade Thai Red Curry.

  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • Garlic and ginger to taste ( at least one clove )
  • 1-2 teaspoons Red Curry Paste

  2. saute onions and garlic until the onion is brown
  3. add chicken, curry paste and a squirt of lime
  4. stir chicken until brown
  5. add the coconut milk, mushrooms, cauliflower and corn
  6. simmer for 15 – 20 minutes, stirring occasionally and watching fluid levels. Add Water if it gets low
