Thai Green Curry is a very delicious exotic dish originated in Thailand. The green curry paste can be made from scratch, but I find buying the paste a more feasible, time-saving option. Fortunately, the Thai Green Curry Paste, a key ingredient in this recipe, and coconut milk are readily available to us in our local supermarkets. What’s more, this recipe is so simple that you can make the mouth-watering dish in 15 minutes 🙂
It is a tasty treat for Sunday special lunch for vegetarians. After tasting this delicious Thai dish in Sydney a few years back, my husband fell in love with it. So, we tried cooking it at home and it has become an all-time favorite in my house. I tried Thai red curry too, but it is a little off my taste. So far, green curry has never lost favor in our home.
Check out this simple recipe and try it the next time you are looking for an exotic dish that can be cooked easily.
1. Thai green curry paste – 2 tsp

If you cannot get coconut milk in the super market, try getting coconut powder and then make your own coconut milk by simply adding warm water to the powder. I used two 75 g coconut milk powder packets to make the milk needed for this recipe. Just heat 200 ml water and add the coconut milk powder to it when the water is warm and stir to avoid lumps. If you have more time, you can use a coconut and extract milk from it after grinding the coconut pieces.
It is very easy to make., try it out and share your comments 🙂
