Thai Green Chicken Curry

Thai green chicken curry was coming from a long time... Having been busy with office work a lot lately. Since, I am not getting enough time to post recipes frequently, I am trying to post atleast 3 blogs whenever I sit down for blogging as an attempt to make up for the rest of the non-blogging days.
I saw the Vegetable version of it in Susma's blog : Authentic Food Delight" and then I had made Thai Red chicken curry some time back too which came out really well. Green chicken curry also tastes equally great. The preparation is same, except, you use green chilies and coriander leaves instead of red chilies.


For Green Curry Paste :
1 large onion chopped
2-3 green chilies
2 tbsp coriander leaves chopped
1 tsp cumin seeds
2 tsp coriander seeds
1 tsp black pepper
6-7 basil leaves
2 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp soya sauce
1 tbsp lemon grass
1 tsp sugar
½ cup water
A pinch of lemon rind for smell (Optional)
Grind the above to a paste. Thai Red Curry Paste is ready. You can replace soy sauce with fish sauce. I didn’t have any fish sauce as I didn’t find it any store in Pune.

Other Ingredients :
500 gm Chicken (Boneless or with bones)
1 green bell pepper cut into medium pieces
6-7 green beans cut into small pieces.
½ cup green peas
1 onion chopped
1 cup coconut milk
7-8 basil leaves
4-5 mini corns cut into medium pieces
Method to cook:
Heat 1 tsp oil in a non stick pan . Add red curry paste and cook for 5 minutes. Next add chicken pieces and mix well. Cook chicken for at least 5 minutes on high flame stirring the contents regularly.
Heat 1 tsp oil in a pan and cook chopped onion. As it turns brown, add bell pepper, beans, peas, corn pieces, basil leaves, half cooked chicken, basil leaves, coconut milk, salt , 1 tsp soya sauce and 3 cups of water.
Bring the contents to a boil. Cook chicken while its boiling for atleast 10 minutes.
Lower the flame and cook for another 6-7 minutes.
Serve with Steamed Rice
