“This is my own recipe for green Thai curry. It's full of flavor, and it will warm you from the inside out. Special, elegant, and absolutely delicious. Watch out! This can be spicy. You'll be patting yourself on the back after this one. So will everyone else. I'd serve this to a king. Serve with white rice.”

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir the shallots, garlic, and ginger in the hot oil 3 to 4 minutes, until shallots are tender. Mix in the green curry paste. Cook and stir 1 minute. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, and place the chicken and lemon grass in the skillet. Cook 5 minutes, until chicken begins to brown. Mix in the baby corn and water chestnuts. Cook and stir until the chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.
  2. Mix the coconut milk into the skillet, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the coconut milk has thickened. Top with basil leaves to serve.

Great recipe! Although I did make a couple of adjustments: I added a bit extra green curry paste (only 'cause I like it real spicy) and anyways, I think it has alot to do with what kind/brand of paste you buy, some are just spicier than others. I also added julienned red and green bell peppers(1/2 a pepper each), omitted the corn, added a little extra ginger, added fresh squeezed lime juice of 1/4 of one lime, and 1 1/2 tablespoon of white sugar, and I used a small handful of fresh cilantro leaves instead of the basil. It was remarkably close to the taste of the green thai curry dish at my fave thai restaurant! DELICIOUS!!!

My favorite food is green curry, and this dish was DELICIOUS! I recommend using less green curry paste to start off with, like the other users said. Thanks to them, I used only 1/2 tbs. of the paste and it still was pretty spicy! This recipe was about 18 dollars total if you do not have any of the ingredients. I also suggest getting jasmine rice from an asian grocery store and cooking it over the stove for about 15 minutes. The water level should be about 1 inch above the rice and cook it covered. Hope this helps! Definitely try it.

Great taste, Really really lovely taste. The dish lacked colour. I think I would add a bit of red pepper and/or carrot strips to it next time. And adding a bit of lime juice and a couple tsp of sugar reduces the hotness but retains the flavour. A little trick I learned in Thailand.
