Green Chicken Curry ( Gang Khiewo Wan Gai )


Green Chicken Curry it a favored dish from Central Thailand, and visitors to Thailand love it because it not too spicy and easy on the palet. A good meal for an evening dinner, here it is cooked with chicken legs but you can use chicken breast instead if preferred. I recommend corn fed chicken, it has much more flavour and a softer texture. There are lots of herbs & spices in the sauce, in old times these would be prepared by hand, luckily today thats not necessary, your local Asian supermarket stocks green curry sauce all ready to use. Note, you can eat the herbs too.
Originally from central Thailand, this is low to medium hot.

100 gms. Green Curry Sauce
4 Corn Fed Chicken legs
200 ml. Coconut milk
150 ml. Water
4 Red Thai Chillis
6 Cherry Tomatoes
1 Teaspoon Sugar
2 Teaspoons Salt
1 Tablespoon Fish Sauce
4 Basil Leaves
3 Kaffir Leaves (Asian Lime Leaves).

Serve With
Hot Fragrant Rice or Rice Noodles

1. Clean the corn fed chicken legs, ensure all feathers are removed and trim.
2. Warm half of the coconut milk until it is just near boiling.
3. Add the curry sauce to the pan and stir until the coconut milk is well mixed with the curry.
4. Put the corn fed chicken legs in and stir it for 2 minutes
5. Turn the heat down to medium
6. Mix the remaining coconut milk with the water, and put add it to the pan slowly, stirring at same time.
7. Leave on a low boil for 20 minutes.
8. Then add the salt, sugar, red chilli and fish sauce in to taste. The taste should be a salt,sweet, curry

10. Add the basil and kaffir leaves together with the cherry tomatoes.

Before serving, it is better to let it cool slightly.

Matsaman Curry ( Gang Garee Gai )


A yellow curry using a premade curry paste. You can make the curry paste yourself if you wish, I will include a recipe for it in future, however it involves a lot of pounding in a Thai mortar and we usually use the ready made paste when in Thailand. So if you want to cook authentic Thai matsaman curry, then strictly speaking it's more authentic to use the ready made paste!

2 Tablespoons Yellow Curry Paste
500 gms Chicken Legs
300 ml Coconut Milk
400 ml Water
250 gms Potato
5 Tablespoons Fish Sauce

10 gms Coriander Leaves for Garnish

1. Put the coconut milk into the pan and bring to the boil.
2. When the coconut milk is boiling add the curry paste and mix it into the coconut milk.
3. Clean the chicken legs and score with a knife, then put into pan.
4. When the curry is boilng again add the water into pan.
5. Add the fish sauce, sugar, and salt and cook for 30 minutes.

Chicken Rice Curry With Coconut ( Koa Mook Gai )


This curry comes from the Muslim area of Thailand, the south, near the border with Malaysia. It is a chicken curry, made with rice and coconut milk, served with a spicy ginger side sauce. Imagine Paella crossed with Thai spices and that is very close to the style of this dish.

Yellow Chicken Curry and Roti


What roti meal would be complete without the traditional southern Thai curry that accompanies it! I covered roti making earlier (link), while your roti is resting you have a few hours spare to prepare the curry. There's enough curry here for the 16 rotis in the roti recipe. Since it's a southern curry, and since there's more Muslims in the south, it's naturally a chicken curry rather than pork, but you can also use pork.

An optional but traditional side dish is the cucumber and onion relish. This is a nice thing to have, the sweet sour onion relish adds an extra dimension to the curry dish, but it's not essential.
In Thailand, we usually have a shared pot of curry, and everyone spoons some of the curry onto their roti as they eat. Together with some spoonfuls of the side relish.

Also, a quick shout out to my site sponsor,, my British-Thai friends website. She makes a whole range of iron on bead transfers, hot fix beads, and can even make to order custom bead transfers, like the 'Appon Thai Food' bead design I have on my apron in the video below.
