Green Thai Curry is one of the most famous curries in the Thai Cuisine much like butter chicken in India. Similarly its quite adaptable to one’s taste or availability of ingredients.
In this recipe I have used Chicken for protien and made thai curry chicken. But you can make a vegetarian thai curry too using fresh vegetables and protien of your choice. Tofu is loved by vegetarians in this recipe.
I have tried to keep the recipe as authentic as possible and given variations and alternatives.

Add 3-4 tbsp of the grinded paste.
Cook well till the oil seperates. This will take good 10-15 mins on a medium low heat.
Once the oil seperates add in the chicken.
Add a little splash of water if needed. Cook until chicken is 80% done.
Now add half of the coconut milk and the vegetables.
You can also add a stalk of lemongrass if you’d like the flavor.
After about 5-7 mins the chicken and veggies would be cooked well.
Now add the rest of the coconut milk and basil leaves.
