Thai Green Curry is one of the better currys in Bangkok
I’ve always liked Thai green curry over many other Thai dishes. I’ve eaten it outside of Thailand on many an occasion. And, so long as it’s not the fishy kind, I’ve always enjoyed it.
How will authentic straight from Thailand Thai green curry match up?
What is Thai Green Curry made from?
This is interesting, and the answer is flavorsome. The green curry itself is made from a paste consisting of green chilies, garlic, shallots, garlic, lime peel, coriander, cumin, and white peppercorns. Shrimp or fish paste is often added as well.
The paste is added to coconut milk and a host of other ingredients are added to the actual dish itself.
In this case aubergine, tomato, green pepper, Thai basil and prawns.
What does Thai green curry taste like?
Coconut chili soup with a meaty bite. It’s refreshingly light as opposed to its western alternative. The prawns are fresh and add to this dish tremendously. The soupy goodness can be utilized well be eating Thai green curry with some authentic Thai rice.
Which is better “Western” Thai Green Curry or Thailand’s very own Thai Green Curry?
I think of all the Thai food I’ve had in Thailand, this is my favorite. That said, I much prefer the thicker heavier western version. Thai green curry rarely fills me up. And, it’s often far too soupy to feel like I’ve eaten something substantial.
All that said, it is my favorite Thai food and well worth trying out for yourself.
