Spread the love

Made with lots of fresh vegetables, chicken/ tofu, coconut milk and green curry paste, this curry makes a delicious and comforting meal for any season. This curry is a balance of a bit sweet, savory, a bit tangy, and hot. Adjust the heat according to your taste buds.

Few dishes are delicious and soul-satisfying with its taste and aroma. In spite of its bursting flavors and creamy texture, this is the easiest recipe to cook any time. This Thai Green Curry is easy, perfect and simple enough for a quick meal for Lunch or Dinner on weeknights too.

This is the best dish to try out when you are cleaning the fridge. Use those leftover veggies to make this curry. I had a couple of green and red bell peppers, 2-3 Carrots, 3-4 asparagus, a handful of green beans, and a bunch of basil leaves and few more veggies which I will use in my next dish. 😀 And it’s been days the can of coconut milk is sitting there in my pantry. So, without thinking much I bought the rest of the required ingredients and green curry paste (I already had red curry paste but that I will use later 😛 ) and cook this delicious curry.

The curry is a bit on the watery side. To make this more like a restaurant style add 1tbsp of cornstarch with 2tbsp of water and stir in while simmering the curry. You will get a creamy and thick textured curry. I would suggest avoiding that if you can. Replace chicken with tofu if you are a vegetarian. Serve this curry on a bed of jasmine rice with lime wedges and enjoy the meal.
