This is so good. However, you must be kidding in stating that 5 min is required in preparation? (i spent 30 min which did not include cleaning up)
I cheated and used Maestri green curry paste. I also subbed broccoli for the green beans, skipped the basil and added a skosh of brown sugar and fish sauce at the end. Turned out great, just the right amount of spice. Super easy.
Great recipe. I added 3 tbsp fish sauce, a tbsp of salt to give it more depth, and for veggies, I added Japanese eggplant. Did not have lemongrass, but it still tasted great. Made extra curry paste and froze it, so that this dish comes together much faster.
I made this and it turned out great. However, when I bought the coconut milk I bought the carton (not the can) and it may have been sweetened so it was a bit sweeter than I desired! Thai food is a bit sweeter so it worked out in the end!
Just made this tonight…. I can’t stop eating it. It’s sooooo good! Thanks for sharing. Will definitely be added to my rotation.
I only have dried keffir lime leaves. Could I toss them in when I summer the curry instead?
Hi, Victoria — yes, that should work fine!
I made this tonight! It was delicious, colorful, and went together nicely. Thank you for sharing this recipe! I will be making it often, especially for company.
Have you ever made a large batch of curry sauce and frozen it?
I make a very similar recipe on an almost weekly basis – it’s awesome – but I sub for the rice because I eat Paleo. Try it over cauliflower “rice” sautéed in a little coconut oil, or zoodles (spiralized zucchini noodles).
I agree w Elizabeth that homemade curry paste is more flavorful, but if you’re pressed for time or can’t find all ingredients, I think Mae Ploy brand is the best (at Asian food stores).
Is / are dried Kaffir Lime Leaves as good as fresh? What About Ground Kaffir Lime Powder?
I have a question – what exactly is a “medium mild green chile”? I don’t think you mean a jalapeno, or a bell pepper…. would anaheims or poblanos work? Could you specify some possible varieties? I’ve been using canned sauce for ages and would love to try making my own.
Any mild chile pepper will do. You could use a green Thai chili, a jalapeño, a poblano, or a serrano, or an Anaheim.
I can only imagine how fresh and delicious this dish must taste and it looks great too! I love curries and I would like to start cooking them at home too. We only eat Italian every day as it is easy for me but it is good to try different cuisines too. Thank you!
I hope to try it soon, looks and sounds very tempting.
Thrilled to hear that Marta!
You can simplify the recipe by using a pre-made green curry paste, available in most grocery stores. Also, you can substitute a variety of vegetables for the green beans and red bell pepper — I’ve used zucchini, yellow squash, and spinach.
Instead of rice, serve with shredded cabbage to minimize carbs.
You can absolutely sub in pre-made curry paste, but I think part of the fun of this recipe is the vivid flavor that the homemade paste gives the dish. It makes a huge difference.
I’ve tried the curry with an assortment of vegetables as well – it’s so versatile! I’ve not tried cabbage as a rice substitute, but it sounds like a great alternative. Thanks for checking out my recipe!
Looks fantastic, thanks for the recipe!!
