Thai Green Curry with Shrimp – Gaeng kiaw wan Goong – แกงเขียวหวานกุ้ง

This is the fastest Curry I could make and in my opinion, the best curry I have made so far. I got this recipe from a cooking show, but they used fried spareribs while I was thinking how to make the simplest, less complicated, but still authentic Curry. Now since shrimp cooks faster and I am the big fan of green curry, here we are. If you can get really fresh shrimp and fresh ingredients, the only result you could have is the most delicious green Curry.

Ingredients serves 2 Notes
Fresh Shrimp 300 grams clean and remove the shell, leave the tail intact
Green Curry Paste 50 grams
Coconut Milk 1 cup
Pea Engplant half a cup
Thai Eggplant 4 pieces clean and cut in thin pieces.
Fish Sauce 1 teaspoon
Sugar 2 teaspoon
Lime Leaves 4 clean and slice thin
Sweet basil leave 1 cup
Red Spur Chili, 1, slice thin for garnish.

How to make:

  1. Fry the curry paste in a bit of vegetable oil until frying and giving aroma.
  2. Add the coconut milk and mix well, season with fish sauce and sugar.
  3. Add the pea eggplant along with thin slice of lime leave and cut Thai eggplant
  4. Let the ingredients cook for a while until the eggplants are soft.
  5. Add the shrimps, cook for a few minutes, check the final taste, when satisfy add the sweet basil leave the slices of red spur chili.
  6. Serve with hot steam fragrant Rice.

Tip: Like in most curry recipes using finish curry paste products, as they have more salt than the home made ones, be careful with the use of Fish Sauce. Because you will not need much fish sauce or in some case, not at all. Guten Apetite!!!
