Really Easy Thai Green Curry Sauce

    30 min

    This is fast, delicious and very versatile. You can add pretty much anything to the sauce that isn't too strongly-flavored. I love putting in deep-fried tofu and a selection of veggies like mushrooms, carrots, mange tout and spinach, but you can add chicken, beef, firm-fleshed fish, prawns... anything! This recipe makes for a dish with a spicy kick, if you prefer mild food, reduce the amount of chillies. The sauce itself is vegan, so if you add tofu, you can have a delicious vegan meal.

    Altered ingredient amounts. Only had to alter the ingredient amounts as I was cooking for twelve.  -  04 Jul 2009


    Lovely! I did tweak the recipe slightly as I added some fresh Lime zest and fresh ginger. I also made my own thai inspired turkey meatballs to have with it instead of chicken.  -  09 Nov 2014
