If you love the green curry paste recipe I’ve previously shared, you must not miss the next recipe I’m going to share with you – Thai Green Curry Chicken recipe! Although it is not the authentic recipe from Thailand, I can guarantee you the taste and smell from my recipe works exactly the same as the authentic one.
WHAT ARE THE VEGETABLE OPTIONS
There are no strict rules for choosing the vegetables to cook with green curry chicken. As long as it won’t affect the taste after adding it, it is fine. Seasonal vegetables are the best option to choose since it is much cheaper during that particular season. For me, I prefer to use eggplant and carrot as I think both vegetables work great no matter in yellow curry or green curry.
If you are vegetarian/vegan, there are many vegetables you can put into the green curry, for example, bamboo shoots, green peas, broccoli, cauliflower, eggplant, carrot, baby corn, bell pepper, zucchini and many more.
HOW TO MAKE THAI GREEN CURRY PASTE
If you are too busy to create fresh green curry paste, you can always get the instant green curry paste from the nearest convenience store. In Malaysia, it is sold at RM5.90 (est. USD$1.41) per pack. Each pack has 50 grams which is enough for creating 4 servings.
But if you prefer healthier and fresher green curry paste, you can refer to my previous recipe – How to create homemade green curry paste. Guarantee no MSG, no preservatives, no artificial colors, and no artificial flavors.
