Thai Green Curry

A friend had come over last weekend for lunch and brought some beautiful veggies and lemongrass as a gift. I was pampering the idea of making a Thai Green curry since then. Needed some tofu and coconut milk to get started which I finally got some time to buy and cook this smooth and healthy curry.

Cooked this humble and delicious curry and rice for dinner and was an instant hit with the hubby who managed to finish the whole bowl of curry and rice and seemed delighted. J

Since I didn’t have lemongrass stalks, I didn’t want to grind the leaves into the curry paste and get a rough paste. Instead, I boiled the leaves in some water and extracted all the flavour in it.

PREPARATION TIME: 10 minutes
COOKING TIME: 20 minutes
SERVINGS: 2
DIFFICULTY SCALE: Medium

  1. Lemongrass leaves – 10-12

  5. Onion – 1 small, roughly chopped
  6. Green Chilli – 1
  7. Kafir lime leaves – 4-5
  8. Lemon juice – 2-3 teaspoons
  9. Lemon zest
