thai: by me!

i've surprised myself by learning how to make a decent thai dish. once i bought the green curry paste and coconut milk, it becomes a cheap meal with lots of vegetables that can be made in just 15 minutes or so (which is a blessing for moving week). this recipe was what i was planning to use but i noticed there was already some instructions on the tub of mae ploy curry paste.

stir fry 50g of green curry paste in 1 tbsp soybean oil, then add 1 cup (240ml) coconut milk. add 200g of fresh meat and continue cooking. add another ½ cup (120ml) of coconut milk and ½ cup of water. heat until boiling. add 100g of vegetables and cook until the vegetables soften, add ½ tsp sugar. taste and season as required.

i did look back on the intended recipe and added a lime leaf in with the meat and a lot more vegetables. also i didn't let it boil and i left out the sugar. the dane suggested a hit of fish sauce and then he loved it! after the heat is turned off, stirring in some torn thai basil is also a nice touch.

new apartment, new baby! our chili baby. we just moved into a well-lit and very white apartment and needed a splash of colour. hopefully it will live long and prosper, so i can make some spicy weeknight staples. (;

All Danish apartments are boringly white. Thinking about painting our dining room red and the bedroom wall brown but then again we might move to a better apartment once I move back to Copenhagen.

Where did you get that chilli plant? I want to buy one too!

Yummm..thai curry. Thai curry with rice is an equally easy but SO SO SO much yummier option than making pasta in some sauce. I want a chili plant too!

thanks for the comments, girls. (:

i got the chili plant at fakta of all places! not sure if there's any more left... ):

eva, that sounds great! actually rune's dad gave me the final decision when we were painting, but i chickened out of all my loud colours and went with white. it makes the rooms bright and i was afraid i would change my mind about any other colour later... i'm just fickle. :P
