THAI VEG GREEN CURRY FROM SCRATCH
After Pad Thai it's time again for a scrumptious Thai Green curry.. I have been buying Thai Green curry and Thai red curry paste for several years now. Always use to look up for fresh ingredients in super markets but that never happened for me in Chennai. This year vacation to Singapore turned to be a perfect grocery shopping vacation for me.. grabbed what ever i could take home..
Bought a pack of Thai green curry ingredients to be made into paste. The paste stays well for a week wen refrigerated. This curry tastes great with rice. Good quality coconut milk is all that is required to make this curry creamy and for the perfect texture. Traditionally turkey berry is added to the paste which i missed to add.
To my surprise SH ate the whole lot of this curry with rice for breakfast.
