The Thai green curry is a typical recipe which you will find all over Thailand.

I first tried this dish about four years ago, in a small Thai restaurant in Koh Lanta, located in Krabi province, and I absolutely fell in love with it.

In fact, it is one of my favorite Thai recipes.

It’s spicy, aromatic, sweet and salty. All at the same time!

Super easy and quick to prepare, I learned how to cook this exact recipe in Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand.

Below you will find the recipe to prepare the curry paste. And thereafter the remaining recipe.

Feel free to skip this part and buy a ready-made paste. You can buy it at ethnic stores or better stocked supermarkets, or make it at home following my recipe below.

You must know that, in Thai cuisine, the most important thing is the right balance of flavors: sour, sweet, salty and bitter.
