Recipe by 831c2bbed306d52121e560ed50646ca5?s=30&r=gTrish yee
Thai green curry is an authentic traditional dish of Thailand. It uses fresh green chillies to make the curry paste instead of the red ones. In South Thailand bird's eye chillies are added in green Thai curry, to make it spicier and hotter. Otherwise, green curries are typically less spicy than other types of curries. You can also add an assortment of vegetables in the curry stew.
