Thai Chicken Green Curry


Green again? Indeed. Thai green again (Thai Green Fish Curry). What else is with Thai and us? Nope. We are not cousins. We can't be? We are Indians and we the Indians who are fond of Thai dishes (Spicy Thai Noodles, Tom Yum Prawn Fried Rice, Thai Fish Noodle Soup & Thai Yellow Chicken Curry). Thai cuisine and their akin magical mystical bold tastes (Seafood Tom Yam Soup, Tomyam Chicken)? Yum, wouldn't you agree? Of course. A big yes from me. The Thai recipe awaiting you today? As you have already noted Thai Chicken Green Curry (Easy Chicken Kebab). Aw-awesomeness. Tender succulent chicken and long beans in a curry made from coconut milk, fish sauce and home style green curry paste, of course, how can Thai Chicken Green Curry not be perfected by the scent of kaffir lime leaves. 

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 saucerry
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!
