Coconut curry with shrimp, tofu, broccoli

First, and foremost, I want to say that this recipe is inspired by Thai cuisine rather than being an authentic recreation of a Thai dish. Thai food is something I love to eat but I know little about cooking. I know some but hardly enough to feel comfortable blogging about an authentic Thai dish. For authentic Thai cooking blog, you should check out SheSimmers and Mananya Cooks. That's where you'll find the good stuff!

This recipe was, more or less, an improvisation. I was planning to make a basic stir-fry with these ingredients. However, that just seemed so uninteresting for this particular evening.

I was flipping through my copy of the July 2010 issue of Food and Wine Magazine I had just received the other day and was inspired by this little snippet about how Laurent Gras of L20 uses a rice cooker to make this Ginger Chicken and Rice dish. I love using a rice cooker to make rice. As long as you follow the rice cooker's rice-to-water ratios, it comes out perfect every time. My version is inspired from his recipe.
