Green Thai Curry

16 May

Green Thai curry has always been one of my favorites whenever I go to dine out. The mere taste of basils,and  kaffir lime leaves is piquant. Usually I used to make the paste from scratch but since these days alot of us prefer quick cooking, I tried the paste. The Real Thai (brand) products available in the market (not very expensive) are quite good in terms that they are tasteful. Usually a sachet is better for a one time use, firstly they are not as expensive as the jars and secondly, the jars might get fungus too soon (depends how often you would cook or eat thai food).
