Being an Indian, I have grown up having curry as part of my meal for all my life, and always thought that there was no curry which could taste as good as them. I proved myself wrong when I first got to try the classic Thai green curry, it made me fall in love with. The aroma, flavours, spices, sweet and creamy texture of coconut on your pallet, and the pungent after taste leave an unforgettable experience. This particular recipe has been experimented couple of times to achieve perfection and meet the authentic Thai curry flavours and taste.
