Ingredients

  • 800 gr Shrimp*, 400 ml thick Coconut milk
  • 100 ml Chicken stock, 2 tbsp Fish sauce
  • 200 gr Round green eggplant/Purple eggplant
  • 2 Red chilies & 5 Cherry tomatoes-sliced
  • 1 Carrot-sliced, 20 leaves of Thai basil
  • 1½ tsp shaved Palm sugar, Salt
  • 2 cm Galangal & 1 Lemongrass-bruised
  • 1 tsp ground fresh Turmeric, Water
  • 5 Kaffir lime leaves, ½ Lime
  • 2 tsp Coconut oil (optional)
  • 5-6 tbsp Thai Green Curry Paste **

Directions

  • Peel off the shells from shrimps but leave the tails intact. Make a slit lengthwise all the way down the back of each prawn & remove the veins. Rub them with lime juice; let it stand for 2-3 minutes & then wash them. Set aside.
  • Cut the eggplants. Soak them in salted water until you`re ready to use them to prevent oxidation.
  • If you`re using caned coconut milk, set can in the fridge for 1-2 hours before using it. Open up the can; scoop out the thickened/solid coconut cream part to cook the curry paste with later on. Save the left over coconut water/milk. Discard the lime leaves stem; then slice them thinly; set aside.
  • Warm up the coconut cream in a wok/deep pan over medium-high heat until the oil from the coconut milk separated out & a thin film formed. If you`re using a caned coconut milk & the oil from coconut milk won`t formed (separated out), add a bit of coconut oil into the coconut milk.
  • Reduce the heat to medium; add in the green curry paste & stir continuously for 3-4 min until it fragrant. Put in kaffir lime leaves, galangal, lemongrass, turmeric, red chilies, remaining coconut milk/water, stock & eggplant. Bring it to a simmer; stir occasionally. Cook until the eggplant softened. Season with enough salt, fish sauce & sugar. The curry should taste salty with just a hint of sweetness. Stir in the carrot, tomatoes & chilies until the vegetables cooked.
  • Put in the shrimps; cook just until they are opaque throughout (2-3 minutes). Turn off the heat & stir in the basil leaves until wilted. Serve the shrimp green curry with warm steamed rice.
  • * You can also use white fish fillet with this recipe. Cut the fish about 1½ inch thick.
