Thai Green Curry Chicken

ThaiGreencurryThai curries and dishes that use coconut milk are  so similar to some of the dishes from my home town in India as we also use a lot of coconut milk and coconut in our dishes! One who has had Thai food, is definitely familiar with the yellow, red and green curries .Today I am sharing the recipe of Green Curry Chicken which  is very simple .If you use the store bought green curry paste (like I did), it is even more easier 🙂 . You could also make the green curry paste from scratch , which  again is quick and easy .There are some other ingredients like bamboo shoots, kaffir lime leaves, Thai basil leaves which you need and they are all easily available in any Asian store  .All these ingredients give the authentic taste. I adapted this recipe from a Thai cook book “Thai cooking”  by Judy Batsyra with some modifications .Vegetarians can substitute the chicken with Tofu as well.Do let me know if you try it , it tastes absolutely delicious!
