Creamy Thai green curry with chickenToday, we're going to prepare creamy Thai green curry consisting of ripe pumpkin and boneless chicken. All you need is some fresh Thai spices and herbs to create the magic. Thai green curry goes well with rice though some prefer to relish it with flatbread. Vegetarians can replace chicken with baby eggplants. Although I've used ready-made green curry paste, one can easily prepare it at home too. If you're feeling adventurous, try replacing the green curry paste with Thai red curry paste and chicken with prawns. And, if you want to get the best results, try using homemade fresh coconut milk (first extract). So, here we go to make this popular Thai curry recipe with little twists for added flavor.
