Thai Green Curry with Colourful Veggies


I always like chinese but my hubby loves thai food, so this time thought of making a thai dish,so when i was searching for one, i got this recipe from tarla dalal's Microwave cook book.....and believe me its so delicious that even i started liking it a lot....and would love to do it again as its very flavourful & healthy too and is a nice way of having all the vegetables u prefer...

Ingredients

For Green Curry Paste 

5-6 green chillies (if chillies are v hot reduce the quantity)

6 cloves of garlic peeled

1 onion chopped 

3/4 piece of ginger

1 cup chopped coriander

rind of 1 lemon 

juice of half lemon 

1 tbsp coriander powder

1/2 tsp Jeera powder

2 stalks of lemon grass

1 tsp salt 

1/2 tsp pepper

Other Ingredients

1/2 cup Mushroom

1/4 cup boiled peas

1/4 cup mixed capsicum cubed (I used both red and green)

1/4 cup boiled cauliflower,(Medium size florets) 

1/4 cup boiled babycorn and cut diagnally

2 tsp sugar

1 tsp Basil leaves (chopped)

1 and 1/2 cup Coconut Milk

2 tbsp oil

salt to taste

Method

For Green curry paste 

  • Grind all the ingredients listed under the 'Green Curry Paste' to a smooth paste adding little water

For the Curry 

  • Take a pan, heat oil add green curry paste and fry  till it leaves out oil at the edges of the pan 
  • Add coconut milk and bring to a boil till it gets blended well.
  • Add boiled vegetables , sugar, basil and salt and simmer and cook till the vegetables get the flavour of the curry and then serve with hot steamed rice
