Thai Green Veg Curry with Courgetti
I’m writing up this recipe sitting looking out at the sea. We’ve been in Sri Lanka for five days now and have had a wonderful time exploring and eating lots of curry (although not as much as would have liked as I literally spent all day in bed yesterday with a bad belly).
This Thai green curry with courgetti is delicous, fast and lighter than serving it with rice or noodles. It can cooked in 10 minutes and is another one of my cheat options as you can use shop bought Thai green curry paste if you haven’t got time to make your own. I think that making your own paste tastes fresher and more flavoursome but sometimes you just don’t have all the spices around or have time so it’s worth keeping a good quality jar in the cupboard for emergencies.
I also love to add in lots of veg and some extra greens like spinach and lots of coriander. You can serve in a bowl with the courgetti and topped with more corridander, slices of sping onion and crushed peanuts. Delicious.
