How To Make Veg Thai Curry I Easy Veg Thai Curry Recipe
First make green paste for the curry. Blend together lemongrass, basil leaves, onions, green onions, green chillies and coriander leaves with spices like roasted coriander seeds, cumin seeds, whole black peppercorns, ginger, garlic and salt to taste. Give a few pulses with a dash of water to make paste.
Now make the curry. Stir fry the vegetables like bells peppers, carrots, broccoli and zucchini. You can use any veggies of your choice, but these work best together to make this curry wholesome. Keep the veggies aside. Heat some oil in a pan and saute the green paste. Add some water to make curry. Then put in some brown sugar, salt and coconut milk and bring it to boil till it thickens. Add the stir-fried veggies and some basil leaves. Cook for some more time and it will be ready to serve.
Take note of the suggestion made by dietitian Ritu Khaneja - always trim away and discard the root section below the bulb base of lemongrass. As you know, Thai curry goes best with steamed rice so prepare that in advance or simultaneously. A complete meal will be ready to be devoured.
