Coconut & Lime Green Thai Curry

Thailand! One place I know I want to visit.  It’s as if it has been calling me to come over for a very long time!  I am extremely drawn to it and one day soon, I hope to go to this beautiful land with my family.

We are very lucky here in the UK as we have so many different types of restaurants and even more fortunate to have some gorgeous Thai restaurants too.  I love the culture, the ambience and the food.

So I wanted to share my green thai curry recipe with you all to enjoy.  I made it at the weekend as a belated Valentine’s meal for my husband and I.  For now this will keep me going until I get to Thailand!

  1. This sounds wonderful. I love Thai curry as well. Unfortunately we don’t have many good Thai restaurants near us so we always seek them out when we travel, or of course make it at home. I will have to give this a try when it cools off a little.
