Thai Green Curry

When you think of Thai cuisine, a few dishes immediately pop up.

Pad thai, spring rolls, noodle soup, and of course, a Thai green curry!

This Thai green curry recipe is extremely simple to make and tastes amazing.

I have added the curry paste recipe too for those of you who want to go 100% authentic. Sometimes these ingredients are hard to come by, so a store bought green curry paste is also fine.

Making The Curry

Curry Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup of coconut milk
  • 1 Cup of water
  • 1/2 Cup of slice sweet egg plant plus any vegetables you would like to add
  • 2-3 Kaffir lime leaves
  • 10-15 Sweet basil leaves
  • 1 Red chilli slice lengthwise
  • 1 tbsp of green curry paste made before
  • 1 tbsp of soya bean sauce

Place coconut milk in wok and turn on medium heat. Add the green curry paste and stir well until you can see oil coming from the coconut milk.

Add remaining vegetables and keep stirring for 3 to 4 minutes.

Add water, bring to boil over medium heat then add soya sauce and sugar.

Once the vegetables are cooked, pour curry into a bowl and garnish with red chilli and sweet basil leaves.

Serve with rice.

Quick note: If you want to add chicken, then do so when adding the vegetables!

Enjoy!
