Thai coconut curry with Jasmine rice.

Thailand  is an exotic land, with amazing white sand beaches, blue waters, and a cuisine that is full of taste and flavor, with a spicy edge. There is plenty of sea food in their diet.

Today I am preparing a popular Thai dish called Thai coconut curry with vegetables. As the name suggests, coconut is wildly used as an ingredient for cooking Thai dishes, this adds a creamy texture to their curries.
The people in Thailand are very friendly, and they are very proud of their culture and beautiful temples. The massages are so relaxing and have therapeutic effect on one, and is a must when in Bangkok.

Water to boil rice
1/2 small onion chopped finely
1 red and green bell pepper sliced thinly length wise
