Mine was a little bland

Not shredding but you could shred if you wanted to 🙂 You can also make a box/pkt mix as well

Could you use the box Thai green curry mix instead do you think?
Does the chicken end up shredding by the end.

You can definitely leave out the eggplant if your prefer 🙂
I’ve not freezed it myself to be certain but I’d love to hear how it goes if you do

Is it necessary to have the eggplant? Also, is this a freezable meal?

Was a family hit last night in my 5.5ltr will definitely be doing this one again

Sure you could 🙂

Could you use beef

Just add a tspn of cornflour to it before adding to prevent it splitting

Can I use coconut cream instead of milk?

No 🙂 I’ll always say specifically if I do though 🙂

Do you brown the chicken first?

I guess you could yes 🙂

Can this recipe be done with red curry paste instead?

Sure – I just find breast a little dry in slow cooking so I always use thigh
Time wouldn’t really change much 🙂

i have made this many times using similar ingredients but mixing that tbs of cornflour into the coconut milk made a huge difference

Absolutely delicious, best Thai curry ever. I will never buy takeaway curry again. Definitely a favourite in our house.

Easy to follow & easy to eat 🙂
A delicious Thai dish that’s just like takeaway – but better!
