How to make Vegetarian Thai Green Curry Recipe:To begin making the Vegetarian Thai Green Curry recipe, we will first make the Thai Curry
To do that, we will first have to prepare the lemongrass. We will first have to trim away and
discard any root section below the bulb base. We will also now remove the dried part of the root
until we reach a stage we know that the root cuts easily and is tender.
We don’t use the leaf part of the lemon grass for the curry paste, you can use it for flavouring a
tea or a soup.
Continue the same procedure for the remaining lemon grass stalks.
Add all the ingredients for the paste into a blender and a little bit of water. Cover the blender and
grind the mixture to make a smooth paste.
After a few seconds of grinding, open the blender and stir to combine the rest of the ingredients
that are required to make the paste – green chillies, coriander leaves, basil leaves, coriander
seeds, cumin seeds, peppercorns, onions, spring onions, garlic, ginger and salt.
If required add a little more water to grind into a smooth paste.
Transfer the Thai curry paste and store it in a glass jar. You only need to use 3 tablespoons of
the paste for a single recipe of Thai curry. So with this paste you will be able to make Thai curry
at least 3 times over.
Method to make the Thai Green Curry:Next we will proceed to make the Vegetarian Thai Curry with this paste. Heat a teaspoon of oil
in a heavy wok. Add in the vegetables like carrots, zucchini, broccoli and bell peppers.
Add in some salt and stir fry the vegetables on high heat until lightly tender. Once tender turn off
the heat and keep aside.
Add a teaspoon of oil into the hot wok, next add in 2 to 3 tablespoons of the Thai curry paste
and saute for a few seconds in the oil.
Next add in a cup of water and stir to combine into the curry. Next we will add in a tablespoon of
brown sugar and finally 400 ml of the coconut milk.
Stir to combine all the ingredients. Once combined, add in the salt, stir and allow the mixture to
thicken a little and come to a boil.
Once the mixture comes to a boil, add in some torn basil leaves and the stir fried vegetables.
Stir the mixture, give it a light boil and the Vegetarian Thai curry is ready to be served.
Serve the Vegetarian Thai Green Curry Recipe with a bowl of Steamed Rice or Jasmine Rice to
enjoy your Thai style Meal.
