Simple Yellow Curry

Hi all! Yellow curry is one of my favorite go-tos when I want something warm and savory. I always have Madras yellow curry on hand in my pantry just in case the craving strikes. Traditionally, the Vietnamese version is made with sweet potato, a whole chicken cut into pieces, onions, and lots of lemon grass. My version will be much simpler, carb-friendly, and I bet most of these items you already have in your pantry if you cook Asian food even occasionally. Let’s start!
