Recipe for Lemon grass Rice-https://udarbharna.com/2020/07/28/5368/
This Thai green curry had an olive green color instead of fresh green color,as I have used dark soy sauce while making the green curry paste.
Now a days a packet of mixed ingredients required for Thai curry paste is easily available in hyper markets.
For Thai green curry:
3/4 cup thick Coconut Milk.
2 tablespoon coconut oil or sesame oil.
2 cups water.
2 tbsp chopped Thai Basil Leaves.
2 cups Prawns,washed,peeled and deveined.
1/2 cup Red and Yellow Bell Peppers,chopped into cubes.
For Thai Green Curry Paste:
3 Thai Red Chillies & 1 Green Chili.
1/2 inch Galangal.
1 Medium Onion chopped.
1/2 cup Coriander Leaves.
5 Kaffir Lime Leaves .
2 Lemon Grass stalks chopped.
2 tsp Coriander Seeds.
1 tspn Cumin Seeds.
1/2 tbsp Dark Soya Sauce.
1/4 tsp Lemon Rind.
3 tbsp coconut milk.
Washed,peel and devein prawns,apply little salt and keep aside.
Remive in a serving bowl and serve the thai green curry with warm lemon grass rice or plain steamed rice.
Tip: It is best to have the Thai herbs and spices for this recipe, but if you do not have this, you could still substitute the Thai ingredients with the commonly used ingredients from the Indian kitchen.
- Galangal: use ginger instead
- Kaffir lime leaves: add zest of lemon instead
- Thai chillies: substitute green chillies.
