Thai Green Curry : recipe

thai Green curry

I had never really tried Thai cuisine until I started cooking for my bakery. I’ve been surprised that I love the flavors so much and am really enjoying trying new recipes. I’ve made Thai red curry now multiple times and have made my own paste from scratch. Since I have a shellfish allergy, I make mine without crustaceans. The Thai green paste I used in this recipe is From a Brand called “Chef’s Choice” -Green curry paste. I purchased this online from Faithful to Nature. It is delicious! (and no shellfish, and gluten free)

1. Coat the chicken fillets in 2 tbsp of the curry paste and season with salt and pepper.

2. Fry the chicken in a pan with a tbsp of oil until for about 5 minutes.

3. Remove the chicken and add the sliced bell pepper to the pan along with 1 tbsp curry paste and saute for a few minutes until the bell pepper is mostly cooked.

4. Add the chicken back into the pan along with the coconut milk and sugar. Stir while bringing it to a gentle simmer for about 12 minutes. Add lemon juice and more seasoning to taste.

5. Remove from the pan and serve as is or over Basmati rice with toasted almonds and fresh coriander./span>

This recipe is also great as a vegetarian version. Instead of the chicken strips, use a 250g packet of stir fry veggies and follow the recipe as per the same instructions above.

PS. Just look at this gorgeous Fork! I found it while antique shopping. I love the detail engravings on it.

Hello. My name is Bonnie. Welcome to my page. I have been an avid baker for about 20 years. Of those years, seven have been gluten-free baking. I discovered I had a chronic intolerance to gluten and began experimenting with converting my all time favorite recipes into gluten-free ones. I also have developed my own recipe repertoire. I am married and have two children. My husband and son are not gluten intolerant but my daughter is. She has also been the motivation for persevering in creating recipes we both can enjoy. My journey has taught me so much and I know many others can benefit from my experience. My hope is that you will find something you can order that you have missed and longed for being gluten intolerant or celiac. Or perhaps you just want a healthier option as I also offer alternatives to some of my orders such as sugar free, grain free and low carb. I share my experience and story in more detail on my Instagram page. (@bonniesGFbakery) Please feel free to follow me there. Located in Somerset West, Western cape, South Africa. I deliver to the Helderberg basin area which includes Somerset West, Gordans Bay and Strand.
