Thai Green Chicken Curry
I got introduced to this exotic food by my hus. from a Thai Restaurant nearby named 'Thai Imbiss' in bürger straße. The restaurant is very small but cozy , the foods are served very warm & the aroma there is simply killing . The most important thing in the curry is a green paste containing galagant( a version of ginger), garlic, sugar, salt, lemon leaves , sojabean oil, bambus shoot n so ...there is so many exotic ingredients , which is tough to buy.
But for gods sake we gets everything in tins & cans ....I bought a tin of green thai curry paste called 'Exotic Thai food ' from Real. But it was tasting the same as from the restaurant. May be they r also using this . So here comes the recipe !!
What all you need ??
Boneless Chicken - 1+1/2 kg
Capsicum - 1/4 from all three colors , red green yellow
Carrots - 2 thinly sliced
Zucchini(courgette) - thinly sliced
Basilicum(Basil) - 2 strand
Bamboo shoot - a handful ( if u want )
Coconut Milk - 1 tin
Clean the chicken , marinate with salt & set aside.
Heat oil in a pan. Add curry paste to this & saute for 3 min. until fragrant.
Add coconut milk , simmer for 5 min.
Add chicken & cook for 10 min. until its half done.
Then add all the vegetables ( adding them later to keep it crispy).
Add basil leaves , simmer & remove from heat when chicken is cooked.
Serve it with aromatic Jasmin rice !!!! :)
