Fresh Green Curry... just like being back on Koh Samet
The most amazing thing happened to me last night..... I made my own green curry paste from scratch, and then I relived my entire 3 months in Thailand in one single bite.
I have been searching for this precise flavour ever since December 1st, 2001, when I left Thailand.
No store bought curry paste has even come close to that authentic Thai flavour, because in Thailand everything is cooked up fresh, from scratch.
Read on for the recipe....
