Easy Thai Green Curry

The key word here is ‘easy’. It’s perfectly possible to create a great Thai green curry paste from scratch but we don’t think that quite falls into the easy bracket, or indeed the budget one. Save your own spice mix for when you’ve got a few more hours and pounds to spare and try this one on a mid-week evening.


Easy Thai Green Curry

Prep Time:



Serves 4 People


£1.25 per Person



  • Ingredients

    1tbsp Vegetable Oil
    300g Chicken Thigh Fillets Cut into chunks
    90g Thai Green Curry Paste Approximately Half a Small Jar
    400g Tin of Coconut Milk
    1 Chicken Stock Cube
    A Dash of Thai fish Sauce
    100g Fresh Fine Green Beans Cut into Halves
    200g Basmati Rice

How to Cook

1. Heat the oil in a large heavy-bottomed frying pan and fry the curry paste for a minute.

2. Pour the coconut milk in the pan and then fill the empty tin halfway with water and add that too. Bring to the boil, making sure you stir through the curry paste.

3. Once boiling, add the chicken thigh pieces, fish sauce and crumble in the stock cube. Simmer for 15 minutes and then add the green beans and cook for a further 5 minutes. Add more fish sauce if further seasoning is required.

4. Whilst you are waiting, boil up a saucepan of salted water and cook the basmati rice according to the packet instructions. Serve the curry on a bed of the rice.

Spruce it Up

Don’t limit yourself to green beans, instead throw in any vegetables you might have sitting the fridge that need using up from florets of broccoli to handful of mushrooms.

    Could you make this using red Thai curry paste – I have an opened jar that needs to be used?

    Do these recipes come in the form of a Book?

    Unfortunately, at the moment they don’t but certainly ‘food for thought’ so thanks!
