Thai green curry. Very simple and enjoyable.
"We made this tonight and it is simply delicious! The sauce is very light and not overwhelming. I only used about a tablespoon of the green curry paste and will double it next time I make this. I could not find lemongrass at the store, so I used lemongrass paste and it worked just fine. I made jasmine rice to go with the curry and I must say this is the best meal I have eaten in a long time! Thanks for an excellent recipe!"- tlbarker72

1. Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan. Add the green curry paste and sugar and cook over a fairly high heat for about a minute, stirring with the lemongrass, if using. Reduce the heat slightly and stir in the chicken pieces and lime leaves or zest until coated in the paste. Add the coconut milk, fish sauce or soy sauce and bring to a simmer, cooking for 25-30 minutes until thickened slightly. Stir in the coriander and lime juice. Check for seasoning, adding more fish sauce or soy sauce if needed.
2. The curry is now best left to sit for a few minutes so the sauce becomes creamier. You will also taste the true flavors of the curry paste ingredients when it's slightly cooler. Serve with lots of fragrant Thai jasmine rice.

cjmonte 9 months agoThis turned out perfect. As mentioned, it is 400 ml or 1 can of coconut milk. I added lots of veggies and served over pad Thai noodles.

8WhitePaws 1 year agoI tried this last night and it was nice. The only thing I didn't really like was that it was quite runny/watery and not very creamy or saucy. Will try again with my own little adaptations :-)
Pcdog12345 1 year agoLove this recipe! I have made this curry for three times by following this recipe... I m looking forward my 4th, 5th......100th times to come!
Shannjj 1 year agoI purchase Thai green curry from my local take away, I am in love with the one they make however looks like this one has bested takeaway, it's simple and easy and takes no time at all, and for a cook that loses concentration quickly, I suggest you go for this recipe (:
Leanabean123 1 year agoFirst time thai eater, didn't want a ready meal or kit as they never taste quite the same and didn't want to be put off for life. Decided to make this from scratch after reading these reviews and glad I did. It was really nice and not at all what I expected. Even better I have frozen half so the next time I have a takeaway moment I'll be reaching for the freezer instead of the phone. Thanks

Bumbleree 2 years agoEasy to make, and super yummy. I used 500 ml coconut - amount in recipe has to be a typo. Will make again and again!
Watsons 2 years agoI used 500ml of coconut milk with 1kg of chicken. 400oz is definitely a bit much.
