Thai Chicken Green Curry


Thai food is akin a magical mystical bold sensation to my palates. Perhaps or most probably because I simply adore spiciness, naturally from chillies and those Thai ingredients simply adds another dimension of magical flavours, plus lets not forget aroma from Thai herbs (Yellow Chicken Curry) which are also synonymous for Malaysian dishes as well. Tom Yam is definitely the most famed and world spoken about, varies types you can make ranging from Seafood Tom Yam Soup, Tomyam Chicken and I must also include the Thai Mee Hoon Kerabu/Salad and Thai Salmon Noodle Soup I actually invented. Today, it is the return of Green Curry (Vegetable Green Curry & Green Fish Curry). The basic ingredients for the base of a green curry remains the same, coconut milk is a must and for the rest of ingredients, especially herbs, vegetables and for the cooking technic, it is basically as you please. This Thai Chicken Green Curry is pretty much loud and vibrant as to speak.

Ingredients
400g chicken - cut into bite sizes
1 cup thick coconut milk
4-5 kaffir/limau purut leaves - tear into pieces
1/2 lime - extract juice
2 tbsp fish sauce
2 tsp brown sugar
10 long beans - cut into 1 inch length
1/4 cup oil
salt for taste

For the curry paste
5-6 green chillies
4 shallots
5 garlic
1 inch ginger
2 stalks coriander leaves
1 lemongrass
#blend these ingredients with some water for a smooth paste.

Method
When oil is heated, fry curry paste until aromatic and oil splits.
Add chicken and stir for a couple of mins (2-3 mins).
Pour in 1 cup of water and stir the curry again.
When chicken is half cooked, add long beans, fish sauce, sugar and salt.
Continue to simmer until both the chicken and beans becomes tender and soft.
Pour in coconut milk and lime juice.
Gently stir the curry.
Simmer for another 2-3 mins and remove from heat.

  1. I love thai food,too. Good thing about it is that some of their dishes are naturally gluten free. My daughter bought a ready mix of green thai curry, once I finish with that I would try it all from scratch. The red thai chilli on top looks beautiful on green curry.

  3. We OD'd on Thai food while we were there too. So delicious! I make a dish called Khao Soi we had while we were in Chaing Mai at least one a week now for dinner. Maybe I'll mix it up with this dish instead next time. So pretty!
