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. (;
