I love Thai food and I went through a period where I ate Thai food at lunch every single day. One of my favourites is a good ol' green chicken curry. I love any kind of curry, but green curry might be my favourite. It's spicy and really rich in flavour. I recently found green curry paste at my local asian product store and I had to try it out.
- 70 grams of chicken
- 1 can of coconut milk
- 1 carrot
- 1 potato
- 1/2 a deciliter of soy beans
- 1 small onion
- 1 1/2 a teaspoon of green curry paste
I start with cooking the chicken in some coconut oil. While the chicken is cooking I prepare the vegetables. I cut the potatoes in very thin pieces, as they take quite a lot of cooking before they become soft. I sliced the onion roughly and sliced the carrot. When the chicken is cooked I just throw the vegetables in the pan and let it cook for 5 minutes at a high temperature. Be careful it doesn't burn. Then I put the coconut milk in and the green curry paste in and let it simmer for 20 minutes. While the sauce is simmering, you can cook the rice.
And there you have it. It can take quite some time to make this meal, but it is so worth it. You can also make a big portion of it and freeze it. It's really spicy and so you have to be careful with the green curry paste, because a little goes a long way.
I hope you liked this recipe and please comment if you decide to make it!
