Thai Green Curry Recipe

Thai Green Curry Recipe: fancy some creamy Thai chicken curry today? Here's the perfect recipe!

It is great to prepare a Thai green curry recipe with a delicious homemade green curry paste (from scratch) but I’m an even bigger fan of ready-made curry pastes I find in my (Asian) supermarket. Why? I once made a green curry paste from scratch at home but strangely it didn’t entirely reach the quality, depth and flavor of the bottled one. Or was it just in my head? I didn’t add shrimp paste because there was none available at that time and the galangal was substituted for ginger. Maybe these little changes were the culprits, who knows.

If you’re still in for a little bit of fun, here are the basic ingredients you need to prepare your own green curry paste at home: lemongrass, green chili, shallots, garlic, galangal, coriander, basil, ground cumin, pepper, ground coriander, fish sauce, shrimp paste, lime juice and brown sugar. Well I guess that's about it. You can either blend the whole lot or play the brave kitchen hero and grind it all into a smooth puree using a mortar and pestle if you got a couple of well-trained biceps...

Good luck and enjoy this recipe!
