Thai Wai Coconut Curry

Homemade in Minutes


Named after the traditional Thai ‘wai’ greeting, this luscious yellow curry-style soup emanates authentic Thai flavor. The curry spices and velvety coconut texture marry perfectly, and we added just a tiny kick of sweet-heat to make it, well, just right.

    10 out of 10!

    This soup was a 10/10 pick-up from the store! Two of my family members love spice and two don’t. The latter two were cautious about the curry, but ended up loving the soup and eating seconds! For those who like heavy Indian-inspired spice, you may want to add some salt and extra curry. Overall, a great soup across the board! I’d totally buy this again. Such easy and hands-off cooking!
