Recipe for Vegetarian Thai Green Curry

Green Curry

To begin making the Vegetarian Thai Green Curry recipe, make the Thai Curry paste first.

To do so, we must first prepare the lemongrass. We must first remove and discard any root section below the bulb base. We will also remove the dried portion of the root until we know the root cuts easily and is tender.

Repeat the process with the remaining lemon grass stalks.

In a blender, combine all of the paste ingredients, along with a little water. Cover the blender and blend the mixture until it forms a smooth paste.


After a few seconds, open the blender and stir in the remaining ingredients for the paste: green chillies, coriander leaves, basil leaves, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, peppercorns, onions, spring onions, garlic, ginger, and salt.

If necessary, add a little more water to make a smooth paste.

Transfer the Thai curry paste to a glass jar and set it aside. A single recipe of Thai curry requires only 3 tablespoons of paste. So, you can make Thai curry at least three times with this paste.

Thai Green Curry Preparation Method

This paste will then be used to make the Vegetarian Thai Curry. In a heavy wok, heat a teaspoon of oil. Include vegetables such as carrots, zucchini, broccoli, and bell peppers.

Stir in some salt and cook the vegetables on high heat until they are lightly tender. When the vegetables are tender, remove them from the heat and set them aside.


In a hot wok, add a teaspoon of oil, then 2 to 3 tablespoons of Thai curry paste, and sauté for a few seconds in the oil.

Next, add a cup of water and stir it into the curry. After that, we’ll add a tablespoon of brown sugar and 500 mL coconut milk.

To combine all of the ingredients, stir them together. Once combined, add the salt, stir, and allow the mixture to thicken slightly before bringing to a boil.

When the mixture begins to boil, add the torn basil leaves and stir-fried vegetables. Stir the mixture and bring it to a light boil before serving the Vegetarian Thai curry.

Enjoy the Thai-style meal, serve the Vegetarian Thai Green Curry Recipe with a bowl of Steamed Rice or Jasmine Rice.
