Thai green curry ingredients
What do you need to make this Thai green curry? The following ingredients should be on your shopping list:

How to make Thai green curry
Start with heating a skillet and add vegetable oil like sunflower oil or olive oil until hot. Pan fry the red onion, white onion and garlic until soft and translucent.
In this recipe we use whole broccoli. First cut the florets from the stem of the broccoli. Then cut the stem of the broccoli into half and then cut it Julienne so you have thin slices of the broccoli stem. As it takes longer for the stems to go soft start by adding the broccoli stems first.
Stir in the pan for a couple of minutes before adding the broccoli florets. The florets will not need as long as the stems and will go soft when the curry is simmering. Then add the mushrooms and green peas. Now it is time to add the green curry paste. Add some water to let the curry paste dissolve.
Bring to the green curry to the boil and pour the coconut milk in the curry mix. Let the skillet simmer for 15 minutes and add water if the curry gets to thick. Only pour in a couple of tablespoons at a time. You do not want a watery curry.
Warm the scallion pancakes in the oven for 8-10 minutes wrapped in aluminium foil at 400℉/200℃. Serve the Thai green curry in a bowl with Jasmin rice and scallion pancakes.
