Thai Green Curry



I do like Thai food but sometimes find the dishes too 'lemak' or heavy for my tummy, especially their curries.  However, Thai Green Curry has always been on my menu list whenever I patronise Thai food joints.  I cooked this curry with  Delimas Thai Green Curry Sauce and as you can see from the pictures, the curry is not 'lemak'/thick as I didn't follow fully the instructions on the packet but added more water to suit my taste buds.  Also added some palm sugar to enhance the taste.







Recipe for Thai Green Curry

    Ingredients
    • 400 gm chicken fillet and thigh, cut into chunks and seasoned with some seasalt
    • 100 gm capsicum
    • 100 gm long beans, cut into 2 inch lengths
    • 150 gm egg plant, cubed
    • 1 pkt Delimas Thai green curry sauce (180 gm/6 oz)
    • 2 to 3 bird's eye chillies, sliced
    • 1 red chilli
    • 4 kaffir leaves
    • 1 tsp palm or brown sugar (optional)
    • 1.14 cup water
    • Some fresh Thai Basil leaves to garnish
    Method
    1.  In a wok, heat up 1.1/2 Tbsp oil and pan-fry the seasoned chicken fillet.  Add in 1/2 cup water and simmer till the chicken is cooked through.
    2. Add in the egg plant, followed by the Thai green curry paste and kaffir leaves, continue stirring.
    3. Add in the long beans, capsicum, sliced chillies and water, continue stirring.  Fine tune to taste.
    4. Dish out and garnish with Basil leaves.
    5. Serve hot with rice.

Marble Castella Cake ~ 长崎蛋糕

What's for tea?  A soft, light and non-greasy Marble Castella ~  Kasutera cake.  I didn't line the pan with foil this time, only with parchment paper and was very pleased that the bottom of the cake didn't stick onto the paper and yielded a perfect brown base.  Indeed a delicious cake to be enjoyed at any time of the day.

Chinese Pumpkin Pancake ~ 金瓜饼

This pumpkin pancake is soft and delicate and not too sweet as the sweetness is only from the red bean paste filling.   For a crispy pancake you can deep-fry them but I chose to just shallow pan-fry them in a non-stick pan.   This is great to serve as a tea-time snack over a cup of brimming hot Chinese tea.
