Thai Green Chicken curry, literally means sweet green curry. It is a central Thai variety of curry. The name “green” curry derives from the colour of the dish, which comes from
green chillies. As this is a Thai curry based on coconut milk and fresh green chillies. The curry is not necessarily sweeter than other Thai curries but, although the spiciness varies, it tends to be more pungent than the milder red curries. Green curry was invented during the reign of King Rama 6 or Rama 7, between the years 1908-1926. Apart from a main protein, the dish consists of coconut milk and other green or whitish vegetables. The consistency of its sauce varies with the amount of coconut milk used. Green curry blend is traditionally made by pounding in a mortar green chilli, shallots, garlic, galangal, lemongrass, kaffir lime peel, cilantro roots (coriander), and cumin seeds and white peppercorns then carefully roasting them to perfection.
