Thai Green Vegetable Curry

Thai yellow chicken curry, Thai chicken green curry and over to another Thai dish. A vegetarian version with the essential big bold ever loved Thai flavours. This dish with Asian herbs, potatoes, aubergine/brinjal and eggs in a creamy spicy tangy gravy for sure isn't difficult to make, though you need a good number of ingredients. First make the curry paste. Add the ingredients listed for the paste in a blender and pulse. Certainly faster than using the mortar. Then as usual, fry the paste, add the other ingredients and cook up.

For the curry paste 
2 red chillies
1 small green bell pepper 
4 shallots
5 garlic
1 inch galangal/lengkuas
1 lemongrass/serai
1/2 tsp lime rind
1 small bunch coriander leaves
1 tbsp coriander powder
1/2 tbsp cumin powder
** add some water and blend/ground for a thick paste

3-4 boiled eggs
2 medium size potatoes - cut into 8 pieces
1 small aubergine/eggplant - cut into 1 inch length
1 cup thick coconut milk
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp fish sauce
3-4 sprigs Thai basil leaves
1/4 cup oil
Salt for taste
When oil is heated, fry curry paste till oil splits.
Pour in 1 cup water. 
Add potatoes and aubergine.
Cook to soften both. 
Next add the rest of the ingredients.
Stir and let the curry heat through. 
Dish out or off the heat.

  2. hi nava,how are you, hope you have fully recovered from your fever.
    green curry is also my favorite...but have not tried one with veggies only.looks delicious and authentic. i like thai basil and eat as ulam.

  3. are very brave to travel alone.

  4. it is one of my favorite..
    During my trip to BKK I got a lot of those curry sachets (ready to make)

  5. Gee, I hope I'm not like that (but you probably think I'll be like that-don't like heat, prawns, expensive goods, spoilt, fussy, chatty, loco) people can change, hope to latch on to future tours (one that's not Turkey deluxe).

    Now back to food, you certainly bring back good recipes.

  6. I am not into thai curries but I supposed I can make them for the family who absolutely adore it.
