Delicious. Added red pepper, onion, and baby corn and served with rice noodles. Easy and really tasty.

Simple yet delicious. Would definitely do it again for a quick midweek meal.

This was my first time making thai green curry. It was delicious! I used sugar snaps and red peppers as well as the baby spinach but otherwise followed the recipe. The peppers added some lovely colour!

I loved this! I used the paste recipe pennyallen posted below, with the addition of some kafir lime leaves, & swapped the standard sugar for palm sugar & this was perfect! It was very summery, fresh and delicious served with some rice noodles it was quick & easy, even after making the paste. This will be regular for me from now on

Quick, easy & tasty - will be making again, great for a mid week treat. We added a whole bag of spinach as we like it, will prob throw in some sugar snaps or something like that next time too

Didn't have any spinach so used green beans from the garden - worked well. This is a great meal, full of flavour and so easy. Everyone loved it!

I'm so excited because I finally managed to make Thai curry (my favourite), this recipe is very tasty and super easy. I put lots of coriander because I love it, and just one and a half tbsp of green curry paste, because I like it mild ... tasted great !

Not keen on buying Green Curry paste.
green curry paste is easy to make- takes 5 min.
And you can freeze for later to speed things up.

2 lemon grass stalks
1 Garlic clove
3-4 green chilli
juice 1 lime
1/4 - 1/2 inch ginger or gangal
tbs cumin
tbs corriander ground
25g pack corriander
tsp salt

Just blend it together with a food processor until smooth.

This make enough for 2 servings for 2 people half the mixture and freeze the rest. Makes this meal super good!!
