Thai Food Recipe - How To Make Gaeng Kiew Wan Kai, Green Chicken Curry
This dish is popular with tourists travelling to Thailand because it is a mild curry, sweet and not very spicy. Most Thai restaurants will have a Green curry (Gaeng Kiew Wan) on their menu. Green Curry is usually made with chicken, however you can substitute with beef or pork if you wish. Unlike Red and Yellow Curries, Green Curry is almost always served with vegetables, round eggplant in particular. This dish usually has a soup-like consistency and is normally served in a bowl with jasmine rice served separately.
How To Make Thai Green Curry
The recipe below is for a mild variety of Green Curry, you can choose to use more chili if you prefer a more spicy dish. The video attached to this recipe is a little different, and you may notice the narrator says "Green Curry is much more spicy than Panang Curry".
