Thai Green Curry with Chicken

14 Mar

Dinner was tasty tonight, so I thought I would share the recipe for this easy Thai Green Curry.

That photo is not even “styled”, you know? I plated up, and it just looked that awesome. I snapped a quick shot on my phone, just in case it tasted any good. And it did that too. ๐Ÿ™‚ I didn’t have any Thai basil in the house (it’s an aniseed flavored purplish coloured basil) so I left that out. And despite usually enjoying spicy food I also left out the green chilli too. We served it with rice (it’s hiding underneath the curry), and it was delicious just like that!

Enjoy.

Butter Chicken Curry

This is one of those delicious dinners that you really don’t want to show the recipe to the people you make it for. There is no pretending that this is a healthy dinner, it is BUTTER chicken after all. It is, however, gosh darn tasty and it’s really pretty easy. You do need to be organised with the marinading before hand though, but after that it’s pretty much a one bowl wonder. Try not to let the list of ingredients intimidate. Half of them are thrown in a bowl to marinade the chicken, the other half are thrown in a pot to bubble away in.

Tip of the day: My sister-in-law wanted to make this, but didn’t have all the spices. She was over at our place anyway, so I just quickly popped one “measure” of all the needed spices in a ziplock bag for her. It gave me an idea for the future. So last night when I was making this for dinner, I kept a small ziplock bag nearby, labeled “Butter Chicken marinade spices”. As I was putting teaspoons of spices into the bowl, I put equal amounts into the bag. I’m hoping that being able to pull this pre-prepared spice bag from the pantry will make the process even quicker for next time. Fingers crossed. ๐Ÿ™‚

We serve this with rice, nann bread and/or papadums.

Another quick tip: Spread papadums out on a dinner plate, pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds – 1 minute, no oil needed. Done. ๐Ÿ™‚
