Red-Curry Free-Range Chicken with Coconut Heart (Gaeng Kai Baan Yod Maprao On)
There are more than 3 million coconut trees on Koh Samui. It comes as no surprise that the idyllic isle is also known as ‘Coconut Island’. Naturally, the local community has incorporated this beloved fruit in all aspects of its cuisine.
A classic Samui favourite, Red Curry with Free-Range Chicken and Coconut Heart features red curry, a popular dish throughout southern Thailand, along with coconut heart. Coconut heart, a delicacy in Thai cuisine, is the delicate portion of the coconut tree found within the base of the crown.
