Making

Thai Green Curry Paste Recipe:

Place all ingredients into a food processor and process for several minutes, scraping down as needed, until fully blended and combined. Alternately, you could grind this by hand in a mortar and pestle. The green curry paste is now ready for use.

Note: Store the green curry paste in a jar in the fridge for up to one week, or in the freezer for up to two months.

Thai Green Curry Chicken Recipe:

Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add the green curry paste, along with a few spoonfuls of coconut cream from the top of the coconut milk can, and cook for 1 minute.

Add the chicken strips, then add the remaining coconut milk, sugar, fish sauce, and kaffir lime leaves.

Turn heat down to medium low and simmer for 15 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.

Add the snow peas, zucchini, baby corn, and bell peppers, and cook for 5 minutes until just tender.

Serving

Garnish with fresh thai basil or cilantro, then serve with jasmine rice. Enjoy!
