How to make Thai Green Curry

This particular curry is quite easy and whips up really quick.  You can use canned curry paste but we found the varieties much too hot for our taste.  I decided to learn how to make Thai Green Curry Paste so that I could control the heat.  I found that even though the ingredient list is long for curry paste, it’s easy because  you throw it all into a blender with some water.  You can make double batches and freeze it or keep it in the fridge, so easy!

You will want to make a trip to the Asian store so you can find some Thai basil, lemon grass, Kefir lime leaves and shrimp paste or miso.  Definitely make double batches, keep it in the freezer, it’s worth it!

To make the actual recipe, coconut oil is heated for about 5 minutes on -low-medium heat, stirring frequently.  It will probably ‘crack’ and that’s OK, that’s how the Thais do it.  Add your curry paste and stir, cooking the paste for a few more minutes, then add the rest of the coconut milk and remaining ingredients, all at once.  Cover, simmer and 20 minute later you are done!  Garnish with colorful optional garnishes and you have your very own Thai Green Curry!  Congrats!  High Five:)

Thai Green Curry Recipe With Chicken and Pineapple

Yield: 5
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 27 minutes
Total Time: 57 minutes

An easy Thai Green Curry with Chicken and Pineapple made with homemade curry paste. Perfectly balanced, this curry is savory, sweet, salty and hot!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Thai Green Curry Paste
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 2 cups chicken
  • broth (vegetable or seafood)
  • 2 Tbs brown sugar
  • 2 Tbs fish sauce
  • 1 lb chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 16 oz canned pineapple chunks
  • 5 cups cooked rice

Instructions

  1. Shake or stir your coconut milk and pour half of the coconut milk in a medium sauce pan, simmer over low-medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
  2. Add the curry paste and cook the curry paste for an additional 1-2 minutes, stirring frequently, then add the rest of the coconut milk.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients, increase heat slightly, bring the pan up to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes with lid on, stirring occasionally.
  4. Serve over rice and garnish

Notes

  • Optional Garnish: pepper slices, scallions, thai basil leaves, chile powder, chile oil, lime wedges
  • The heat in curries can vary greatly, the peppers you choose will have different heat indexes. if your curry is not hot enough, adding red chile flakes while it is simmering will add some extra heat. You can also garnish with pepper sauce, our favorite is Sriracha, or chile oil, chile powder. It is safer to make your curry paste on the milder side because you can always add heat later but you can't take heat away.

I just love a good curry. The secret, in my opinion, is the best curry paste you can find so if you have a local Asian grocer that stocks a homemade paste buy it! This recipe is extremely flexible in terms of the veggies or meat you add. Other yummy ingredients would be red peppers, mushrooms, a bit of eggplant or beef instead of chicken. Heat a large frying pan or wok and add the cooking oil, curry paste and three tablespoons of coconut milk.

I get a lot of requests from Dave to make this. It's his favorite Thai soup but when we order it from restaurants the heat profile isn't consistent. I learned to make this so we can control the heat. Glad you like this!

Oh I LOVE the colors in this. I've had an Asian curry with pineapple before and it was amazing. I think this is the same curry. Going to make this soon.
