Simple Green Curry Recipe

Prep: 10 mins

Cooking: 10 mins

Serving: 2 - 3

The best thing about Green Curry is the curry sauce. The real authentic Thai green curry is very minimalistic and doesn't have much like western styled ones. It's minimal so people can taste how good the curry is without being distracted by too many vegetables and meat. Also, the best way to make the curry is either with the whole chicken thighs in them or with beef strips.


  • Jasmine rice, crispy Roti or Thai rice noodles (kanom jeen)
  • 3 - 4 chicken thighs (cut or uncut, depends on preference)
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 2 - 3 tbsp Thai green curry paste
  • 400ml coconut milk, tinned
  • 3 kaffir leaves (or lime leaves)
  • 2 - 4 tbsp fish sauce
  • 2 - 3 tbsp sugar
  • Optional: Fresh red chillies to garnish


No more preparation needed as you don't have to cut the chicken!

1. Cut chicken thighs in half (if prefers smaller chicken bites)

If you can't find the authentic Thai green curry paste nearby, we offer a meal kit that comes with a ready made delicious green curry paste, dry kaffir leaves and chillies, and coconut milk.


1. Heat the oil in a small to medium-sized pot or wok over medium heat.

2. Add the curry paste in and stir until you can smell the nice fragrance of the paste.

3. Add coconut milk, kaffir leaves, fish sauce and sugar to your liking.

4. Meanwhile, boil the needed portion of rice or noodles. Or prepare the Roti.

5. Lower the heat to medium low, then add the chicken thighs. Leave it to cook for 10 - 15 minutes or when the chicken is cooked.

6. Remove from heat. Serve it in a separate bowl with rice, garnish with red chillies (optional) and enjoy the meal!


  • Add chicken after mixing different spices in the curry to avoid overcooking the chicken.
