Recipe of the month - Green Curry
We're introducing our very own recipe of the month!
Across Chaophraya, we send out recipe cards after our Cooking Schools however they're of high demand and are requested daily via our social media channels! So, every month we'll be sharing one of our most loved recipes for you to try at home.
As this is the start of something new, we thought we'd share one of our most popular dishes within our restaurants. This is a simple dish which is easy for you to cook any day of the week, our traditional recipe of Thai Green Curry! Naturally, this recipe is gluten free and in this case it's vegan too! Vegan curry is something that goes down well with everybody however you can substitute some of the vegetables in this dish for a protein of your choice. Within Thai Leisure Group, we serve our Thai Green Curry with a choice of chicken, beef or prawns as this is the authentic Thai way of serving the dish.
Just remember, a traditional Thai Green Curry does have a kick of heat so adapt to your taste if need be!
200g vegetables of your choice (we recommend courgettes and green beans)
450ml coconut milk
50g green curry paste (you can buy this in a supermarket but homemade is best)
2 red chillies
2 tsp palm sugar
10 Thai basil leaves
2 tbsp vegetable oil
