IMG_0772

I wanted to share my new found love with you, if you’ve read my post on Thailand you’ll know how deeply I’m in love with Thai Curry but then I’m also in love with running, blogging, my day job and spending time with my husband and my point is that although I love eating healthy and delicious food I don’t quite like spending very long in my kitchen so I’m always looking for cooking hacks that make life easy.

So here’s one of them…

It is going to be simple,straight forward and very quick so over a drink or two and Adele on the radio let’s do some cooking!

-You will need-

75g Green curry paste

2 X 400 ml cans coconut milk

2 fresh kaffir lime leaves

2 tablespoons peanut oil

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

1 tablespoon grated palm sugar

1/3 cup basil leaves

1 fresh thai chilli

2 green onions, sliced

Your choice of vegetables

Chicken/Lamb/Prawns

-Let’s make it-

1. Sauté the chopped vegetables in a tablespoon of peanut oil. Also use peanut oil for cooking the meat.

2. In another pan, place curry paste and cook over low heat until fragrant, then add lime leaves, coconut milk and bring to simmer.

3. Add palm sugar, sauteed vegetables and lime  juice and cook for about 5 minutes (told you it was quick ;)) . If you are making a chicken/lamb or prawn curry then add them at this point and cook for another 5 minutes.

4. Add some green onions and basil and thai chilli, stir well and serve with garlic rice!

I know there is a little bit of cheating involved here because we are not making our green curry paste from scratch but guys shortcuts don’t always cut life short! So pour a glass of wine, tuck in and enjoy!
