Thai Green Curry with Chicken

10:37 AM MC 0 Comments

In Thailand we can find the green curry dish almost everywhere from street food vendors to high restaurants, and all kind of celebration parties and this dish also available at every Thai restaurants out side Thailand too.

If you’d like to serve the green curry with Roti or Paratha then the curry should be thick - you can skip the water. For more aroma of Thai taste, add the Kaffir Lime leave just before serving.  The best way to cut or chop Kaffir Lime leave finely is that – stack and fold the leave tightly and then cut.

* Freozen plain flat Roti or Paratha dough is available at Asian grocery stores.
