Thai food in seconds

I am amazed at everyone who dedicatedly take pics after they are done with cooking and post it along with their recipe. I'm too lazy or may be very instinctive. I never plan on cooking something unless I have been craving it for a week or so.

By the time the food gets done am all in the eating mode and realise once the plate is cleaned up that i should have taken the pic. Anyways here is the Thai Green chicken curry. If you have seen my earlier post you know I had my bottle of the curry, you get it everywhere these days in international grocery stores.

to get

  • green chicken curry paste or sauce

  • chicken (boneless)

  • oil

I had drumstick chicken in my fridge, so I defrosted and cut off the chicken from the bone.

to do

  • heat a pan and add 1 table spoon of oil

  • add the chicken and just let it sear in the pan on both sides (cover the pan)

  • once done, open up the green chicken curry (bring it to room temperature)

  • remove the chicken and add the curry paste in the same pan

  • let it boil for a few minutes and add the chicken to it

Remember the drumstick that I have used for the chicken and I had stripped the meat clean from the bone. So, now I take a stock pot and add 5-6 cups of water, salt and pepper, one onion and 5 cloves of garlic and add in the bones. The product- home made chicken stock. Let it boil for an hour and strain off the liquied or easier (what i do), just throw away the bones.

the chicken rice

  • to be served with the green curry

  • take a small container and add the stock to it and let it boil

  • rinse a cup of rice (make sure you have the right amount so extra liquid does not stay behind, i eyeball my measurements)

  • let the rice boil and add a little black pepper or chopped bell peppers if you like.

  • once it is done, serve with the green chicken curry

You can add vegies to it and you can serve yourself one hearty meal even without the chicken curry or throw in some leftover meat to the rice.
