Introduction: Spicy Thai Green Curry With Chicken
I have always been a huge fan of Thai cuisine and never dreamed of preparing it at home, but I found few recipes in you tube and tried many recipes and came up with this recipe to suit my taste buds. This recipe so quick, spicy and a little bit sweet and the lingering after feel on the tongue is pleasant. Please note, I have used store bought Thai green curry paste, as where I live I could not find all the ingredients to prepare the paste from scratch. I used the brand "Maesri green curry paste" which I ordered from Amazon and the final product just tasted awesome and restaurant like.
Also I was not able to create a photo collage as my Picasa was not working and also after trying various other online tools, I just uploaded the photos one after the other in the instructions. I apologize and please please advice me on which tool I can use in future to create and upload collages easily.
