The friendly woman behind the cash register advised us on the ingredients — the place has an entire WALL devoted to curry pastes; it’s mind-boggling — and I came home with green curry paste, lime leaves, Thai chiles, basil, and those adorable little golf-ball-sized eggplants.
I’d been putting off a trip to Chinatown because I never have enough time, but I have to admit that it’s such a treat to have Thai ingredients in my pantry again! This afternoon, I made one of my favorite recipes — Thai green curry with chicken and loads of vegetables, laced with coconut milk and enough chiles to perk up a Sunday evening. I found this dish via my friend, Jennifer, and it’s everything you want in a home-cooked meal — spicy, quick, nutritious, and so delicious you’ll be licking your bowl.
