Recipe - Green Thai CurryCategories: More, Simply, Antony, Green Thai Curry
1 One half kg Roasting chicken; (3lbs)
225 ml Coconut milk; (8fl oz)
3 teaspoon Green curry paste
2 Sprigs tender citrus leaves
1 teaspoon Salt
2 tablespoon Fish sauce
2 tablespoon Finely chopped fresh green
chillies; seeds removed
4 tablespoon Finely chopped fresh basil
Divide the chicken into joints.
Heat a cupful of coconut ?cream? (scooped off the top of the milk, after it
has been left to stand for a while) in a large heavy saucepan, stirring
occasionally, until the cream thickens and oil bubbles around. By this time
it should be reduced to a quarter of the original amount.
Add the curry paste and fry the rich oily cream for about 5 minutes,
stirring constantly. The curry paste will smell cooked, and the oil will
seperate from it when it is ready.
When this happens add the pieces of chicken and cook over a medium low
heat, stirring frequently and turning them, for about 15 minutes. The
chicken will change colour and have cooked appearance.
Add the remaining coconut milk, citrus leaves, salt and fish sauce and stir
while the coconut milk comes to the boil.
Then turn the heat down and allow to simmer uncovered for about 35 to 40
minutes, or until the chicken is well cooked and tender and the gravy is
rich and oily.
Stir in the chopped fresh chillies and heabs, simmer for 5 minutes longer
and then turn onto a serving dish. Serve with rice.
