The curry has an amazingly fresh taste, with creamy coconut, just enough chilli and loads of coriander.
The original recipe excluded the vegetables, but to fill a house full of students I added vegetables I thought would complement it to help fill us up and make it cheaper. If you don't fancy green beans, mange tout go really well as well.
The recipe for the curry paste I use can be found here, it's really quick to make in batches in a food processor and can be frozen up to 6 months for convenience.
Step 1: Ingredients
- 2 tbsp
green thai curry paste(according to taste)
- 1 tbsp soft dark brown sugar
- 2-3 large carrots, cut into thin sticks
- 200g fine green beens, cut into ~4cm lengths
- 1-2 thick stalks lemongrass, fat ends bashed with a rolling pin (optional), I use paste
- 750g/1½lb skinless, boneless chicken, cut into chunks (use breast and/or leg meat)
- zest and juice of one lime
- 400ml/14fl oz coconut milk (a can full)
- 2 tbsp Thai fish sauce (or light soy sauce)
- handful of coriander, roughly chopped (the more the better though to be honest)
