We have a slight disagreement in our house. My husband and I both really like Thai food and Indian food. I like Indian over Thai, he likes Thia over Indian. Considering I am the cook, that means we have Indian more than we have Thai. I tried to make Pad Thai once, and it just didn’t turn out. I have figured out what I did wrong, so I just need to try again. Not sure why I haven’t yet. So in an effort to be a good wife, I made a Thai Curry.
When we go out for Thai food, we don’t usually get curry. I always get Pad Thai, I mean always! My husband tries a couple different things, but they are usually noodle dishes of some sort. So although, this definitely had lots of Thai flavors, and we both loved it, I am not sure I am off the hook yet. Must. Make. More. Thai.
I will admit I was slightly nervous about the green curry. I am weird like that. If it is a strange color it makes me nervous. I am used to red curries, so this was a little different for me. It was perfectly spicy, and the coconut milk gave it great flavor. We will be making this many more times in the future!
