Thai Chicken Green Curry


A wonderful solo holiday in Bangkok (Amata Spring Country Club and Pathuwman Princess Hotel), I returned home with the fond memories especially the various types of food I tucked into. Among those yellow chicken curry and Thai green curry were simply the best. Both awesomely creamy and spicy. I also had a chance to speak to some of the owners of the eateries, they were kind enough to share that coconut milk and fish sauce are the "must-add" for their dishes. Subsequently, during the last few months, Thai food have been regularly featured at home, including this spicy, creamy and aromatic with Asian herbs and succulent chicken pieces


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

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!
