Thai green curry with baby aubergines and snow peas

Posted by

A mild curry that I prepare at least once every two months. Light, fragrant and healthy. Green Thai curry with baby aubergines and sweet peas served with hot rice is a delight. 

Thai cuisine is something I enjoy making. It makes my life easy when I have a jar of Thai curry paste. The curry base comes together in minutes and can be stored for almost a week. 

I found a pack of fresh ingredients for Thai curry paste in the supermarket in almost correct proportions. I added baby aubergines and sweet snow peas to make this a healthy veg curry. 

The sweetness from coconut and freshness from lemongrass gives this curry a unique taste. I hope you try this easy recipe.
