My neighbor Miss SP gifted me a packet of Thai green curry paste and I was like ahhhhh...what am I going to cook it with ? I have never cook green curry before ! I have some shrimps and some beef in the freezer ....so be it , shrimps will do. I wanted to cook the shrimps in rice wine actually but since my kind neighbor wanted me to tell her whether this paste is as good as recommended by her friend, I have to oblige her and cook green curry instead .
To do her a kind favor , I took home and cooked the shrimps with this packet of green curry paste. The trouble is I see her everyday, she will surely ask about it :p so to get it off my mind , I cooked the shrimps with it the next day and to my surprised it was good. Luckily I had some fresh coconut milk in the freezer and I had some thai basil at home. It was good and Jo had the most share. Young people are blessed , they get to eat more :p I may think I am 25 all the time , the mind can take it but the body just can't take in all these goodness , I took 2 pieces only so that I can give her a full review on it to Miss SP :)))
The result was a pot of deliciousness...the fresh basil makes the paste much nicer of course. Gave it the boost and highlighted the taste of the green curry even more . I would say I will give it a 3.5 /5 star rating for a ready paste. I would prefer to make my own paste from scratch . I seldom use ready paste unless I am too lazy to prepare them :p For those of you who would love to try it out , you can get them from the Cosway agent. I can't tell you the price for a packet coz it is not polite for me to ask Miss SP :p it won't cost a lot. A few RM only...maybe RM4-5 :) The secret is that you have to add in more fresh basil leaves and cook them in clay pot . The taste sensation would be greater :O The rest of the pictures below will tell you how good it is . Have fun drooling, if you can't take the salivating anymore, then cook this LOL!
