Thai Green Prawn Curry

Thai Green Prawn Curry

I've eaten a lot of Thai Green Curry's in my time. A LOT, but they have always been very hit and miss and never quite lived up to expectation. The last occasion I ate a Thai green curry (only a month or so ago) it was a very definite miss! Bland, watery and robbed are the words that come to mind.

I really wanted it to redeem itself so when I was offered the chance to try Thai Taste Green Curry Paste, in preparation for Thai New Year in April, I jumped at the chance. 'Please please be good'!

Luckily for me it was! The paste had a really good depth of flavour, was well seasoned with a nice spicy kick. The curry only took 20 minutes to prepare , making it a perfect midweek meal . Thai Taste produce many other authentic Thai products and I will be seeking these out at the supermarket next time I visit. A very definite thumbs up from me!

  2. I bought the red paste recently when Sainsburys didn't have my usual brand, and it was absolutely gorgeous, I'm a convert :) Must try the green one too. Your curry recipe sounds yummy!
