Thai Green Curry Chicken
Thai green curry is a crowd-pleaser when paired with chicken or with shrimp served with steaming hot rice, especially on rainy evenings. The fresh earthiness of basil, cilantro, kaffir lime and the heat from green chillies makes this curry so appetising. With Ayam Brand Thai Green Curry Paste you can prep and cook this restaurant-quality curry in 20 to 25 minutes. Here’s how:
- In a pan, heat cooking oil and fry one-shot (50gm) of the Ayam Brand Thai Green Curry Paste for 30 seconds until fragrant.
- Next, add 200gm of sliced chicken breast or thigh and stir fry until meat is tender. Pour in a 200ml pack of Ayam Brand Classic Coconut Milk. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
- Add in some chopped eggplant, and finely sliced carrots and stir in until the vegetables are done. For a more fragrant and spicy dish garnish with kaffir lime leaves, sliced red chillies and lemongrass.
- A Thai-riffic dish that is tasty, well-balanced and surprisingly easy to whip up. Serves 2 to 3 people.
