#ThaiTuesday Thai Green Curry

I’m going to be posting #ThaiTuesday Recipes once a week. I personally eat a lot of Thai food because I find it healthy. I can for the most part stick to lowfodmap and it does not disagree with Bertha my stoma.

Since my stoma formation in November, my love of spicy Thai food has come back with a passion and I can’t eat enough of it.

This week’s recipe is Thai Green Curry. I love this and have adapted it so it is stoma friendly for me. This should only take in total about an hour to prepare and cook. This will serve 3-4 adults. If you are making for more then adjust the ingredients. I normally double everything if it’s for more people.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp of olive oil for frying the chicken
  • 615 grams of chicken thighs chopped
  • 400 ml of coconut milk
  • 2tsp of soy sauce
  • 2tbsp of fish sauce
  • 4tbsp of Thai green curry paste
  • 200 grams of fresh green beans topped and tailed and cut in half
  • 2-4 shallots finely chopped (optional)

You can add shallots if you wish to. I myself don’t purely because my stoma does not like them.

Method

Before frying the diced chicken thighs put the green beans into boiling water and boil for 10-15 minutes to make them soft.

  • Fry the diced chicken for 10-15 minutes until cooked
  • Add Thai green curry paste and cover the chicken by stirring for a minute or two until the chicken is coated
  • Add the soy sauce, fish sauce and green beans and give that a stir for a minute or so
  • Add the tin of coconut milk and keep stirring into the coconut cream has blended into the water residue in the pan
  • Leave to simmer for 10-15 minutes. If you feel the mixture is slightly dry then add a tbsp of water and mix until you have your desired consistency

This is now ready to serve with rice. I always use long grain white microwave rice as half cooked rice does not agree with my stoma. So just to be on the safe side I always use microwave packs.

Any left overs can be stored in a sealed box for 3 days and this is perfectly safe to reheat using the microwave.

Hoping you have enjoyed this recipe. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated so please feel free to comment.
