The Thai Green Curry features chunky veggies in a lip-smacking green curry, constituted of aromatic herbs and spice powders, tangy lemon juice and rinds, and of course, onion, ginger, garlic and the usual repertoire of flavour enhancers. Like in most Thai preparations, coconut milk does the balancing act making the curry perky yet pleasant to the taste buds.

The veggies in this preparation have been chosen to balance colour, flavour and texture. However, you can comfortably use other vegetables of your choice.
