Like for most people, Vegan Thai Green Curry Recipe | Thai Green Curry Paste was my first experience with Thai cuisine and I can say it is still one of my favorites. Though Thai curries can sometimes have a bit too much of heat, this curry is just the opposite. It is quiet herby, has very mild heat which is almost sweetish from the coconut milk tat form the base of the curry.

I have made the Green Thai Curry paste at home too. It is rather easy and you can avoid the main Thai ingredients like fish sauce and shrimp paste that might be in the store bought curry paste. So, the choice is yours, you can either make the paste at home or use the ready made paste from a jar. I wouldn’t suggest storing the homemade paste for too long, so it is better if you make it in smaller batches and use it like 2-3 times and then make a fresh batch for your next round of curries! That way the flavor remains really fresh and robust. You can make this Vegan Thai Green Curry Recipe | Thai Green Curry Paste for meal prepping too and plan ahead.

I have used a lot of veggies here like broccoli, carrots, bell peppers, etc. You can add any veggies to the curry or maybe some tofu  too. My hubby is not a fan of tofu so I usually skip it if we are both having the curry. The most important thing is that you use really fresh produce for this curry because that makes the most difference to the flavors.

Let us start making the Curry Paste and the Vegan Thai Green Curry now.

For the paste –
Add all the ingredients in a blender and make a paste using a little water. The paste should be a bit coarse but not too much.

For the curry-
Prep your veggies. Do not slice/ cut the veggies too finely. They need to be bite sized.
