Method

Curry Paste

  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    First, prepare your curry paste.  Heat a frying pan over a medium heat.  Add the peppercorns, coriander seeds and cumin seeds to the dry pan.  Heat until fragrant, then remove from the heat.  Place in a mortar and pestle or spice grinder and grind into a powder. 

  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    Next, chop the chilies, scallions, galangal, coriander roots, kaffir lime peel and lemongrass. 

  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    Place the spices, chopped ingredients, and salt in a large mortar and pestle and pound until it has turned into a paste.  This will take about an hour.  Add the shrimp paste and pound until well combined.

  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    If you are short on time, you can place all ingredients in a high-powered blender and blitz until smooth. Set the curry paste aside.

Curry

  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    To make the Thai green curry, in a large pot, add the water, green curry paste and kaffir lime leaves.  Bring to the boil then reduce the heat and cook until the sauce has reduced and thickened. 

  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    Add the shrimp, coconut milk, stock and eggplants, bring to the boil, then cook until the prawns and eggplants are cooked through.  Taste and add salt if necessary.  Just before serving, stir through the Thai basil and red chillies.

To Serve

    Serve with jasmine rice and spoons to mop up the delicious curry sauce.

Note

  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    Galangal is a root vegetable, similar to ginger, and can be found in Asian supermarkets. If you can't find it, you can substitute it with ginger.

  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    Dried shrimp paste adds a unique flavour to this dish, but is not overpowering.  It can also be found in Asian supermarkets.  If you can't find it, you could substitute with fish sauce. 

  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    Kaffir lime and kaffir lime leaves have a unique flavour and are an important flavour component in this dish. If you can't find them from your local Asian supermarket, you can substitute with regular lime juice, but the flavour will be different. 

  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    Thai eggplants are little round eggplants, the size of a chicken egg.  They have quite a different texture and flavour to regular eggplant.  They are available from Asian supermarkets.  If you can't find them, you could substitute them with large cubes of regular eggplant.

  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    Thai sweet basil is very different to regular basil, and can also be found in Asian supermarkets. If you can't find it, you could substitute with fresh cilantro, but the flavour will be different.
