Cambodian Pineapple Curry Recipe

For this Cambodian Pineapple Curry Recipe you can use Thai eggplant or any long bean whatever you like, but don’t do it without pineapple. This curry will taste a bit different because of the Pineapple flavor.


1 chicken leg or chicken breast or 10 big shrimps cut to bite size
1 can of coconut milk
1 cup of bamboo shoots cut to bite size
1 cup of white cauliflower (this is optional that what I had in my fridge)
2 cup of chunk pineapple (if you have fresh is better)
2 cup of water
1/2 sliced white onion
A handful of Thai basil for garnish
1 tablespoon of red curry paste (I don’t have red curry today so I use yellow curry)
3 tablespoon of fish sauce
1 to 2 tablespoon of sugar or less up to you
1/2 teaspoon of tamarind powder (if you pineapple is sour you don’t need it)
