  • Guy's we were going to make Thai Green Curry.

  • This is one of my favourite curries,

  • it's delicious, fragrant, fun to make, and it's so fast,

  • my family love it.

  • We were going to go, 1 cup of rice, that's enough for 4 people

  • And then 2 cups of water, this is the perfect equation for the perfect fluffy rice,

  • no mucking about, ok.

  • A pinch of salt, lid on top, medium heat, happy days

  • I've put another pan on a medium heat, that's getting hot

  • We were going to make a paste, peel a thumb size piece of ginger

  • Put this in with your rice, and that then fragrances your rice

  • So we were going to go in, with your thumb size,

  • my thumb not your thumb right.

  • Thumb sized piece of ginger

  • In to the food processor

  • Then were going to go in with the lemon grass, now I need to spank it

  • I just take the top part off because that's tough

  • and then this part, I'm just going to break that up and put that in

  • Four cloves of garlic

  • And then 6 leaves of Kaffir lime

  • A pinch of cumin

  • Beautiful

  • Little green chillis here, out with the seeds

  • I'm going to go for 3

  • 2 shallots

  • A nice bunch of coriander

  • So it couldn't be any easier right? Just bung it in

  • And then a table spoon of groundnut oil into the pan, it's fairly hot

  • I'm going to go in with 750 grams of chicken

  • And also the chicken thigh is tastier

  • more moist and its cheaper, so we'll fry this off, 8 minutes in a hot, hot pan

  • In the supermarkets today you can get a whole bunch of different mushrooms,

  • we've got a Enoki's, king oysters here

  • But you get those little mixed pack of Asian, oriental mushrooms

  • Quarter some, we can leave these whole and just break them up into little wads

  • Look how amazing that is

  • So I'm just going to push the chicken to one side and then I'm going to go in with the mushrooms

  • Loads of texture, loads of different shapes

  • And that suck up some of the lovely fat that's come out of that chicken as well

  • These little delicate mushrooms here, I'll put those in just at the end

  • because if you overcook them they'll just go too soft

  • Now we've got some nice colour,

  • on the chicken

  • and the mushroom

  • I'm now going to go in with the paste

  • Delicious, fast cooking, I like this

  • I like this a lot

  • Straight in with the coconut milk

  • And I'm using a coconut milk that's light

  • Just to sort of keep the fats in check

  • Add just a little bit of water

  • So give that a little shake

  • Now in with the mangetout

  • Now we know that only needs 2 minutes to cook, so that's kind of your timer now

  • Of course you can use any other seasonal greens

  • Have fun with it, make it your own. Now that's come to the boil

  • These little delicate mushrooms go in

  • 2 teaspoons of fish sauce goes in

  • 1 and a half lime

  • With the Thai basil just on the top, I'll stir that through at the last minute

  • Wooden bowl for the rice, wooden bowl for the Thai Green Curry

  • You've kind of got like, ginger tea infused rice

  • Take out the ginger and then we'll just use a fork just to scuff up that rice

  • Because what we want is light, fluffy rice

  • Here my friends is our Curry

  • Balanced with lime and the seasoning from the fish sauce

  • Finish with some herbs

  • What a wonderful dish

  • More chillis guys, more chillis

  • It's lovely to see little pops of colour

  • Thai Green Curry cooked in the time that it took to cook some basmati rice

  • Look at that

  • So let's have a little go

  • Very good, it's got that wonderful sort of tropical flavour, like really really perfumed

  • Of course you could swap the chicken out for Tofu, go vegetarian, big up more veg

  • You can swap the Tofu or chicken out for prawns

  • Really really good

  • And there you go guys, Thai Green Curry Jamie style
