Green Curry


I made this curry for a get together that we had for our friends. They wanted Indian and thats what they got. I was a in a hurry when I made it so I didn't write what I put into it, the main veggies are: spinach, onions and tomatoes. Of all the curries I made this one is one of the best, we have a lot of spinach now so I will make it again some time. The Potatoes were tasty and easy to make, I'll post for those in the future as well.

Jr. find a good recipe for palik paneer. Don't tell an authentic Indian (or long-timer) but momen-dofu is a great substatute for paneer. It's pretty good, and minus the tomato, so it retains a real dark green look.

Junior said...

Al, you really are something aren't you? What on earth is palik paneer and what the heck kinda tofu is that,lol. I'm not so into tofu but I can look into this. Oh and the reason it ain't too green is cos I put in dairy and coconut milk, was a bit creamy. And what did you think of my Thai curry?

I haven't tried the Thai curry yet, I'll still wishing I had lemon grass. :( But I do love the idea of using takenoko, so I'll try it next time we get one.

As for the curry I suggested, paneer (as far as I've heard) is a indian-type cheese, but the consistancy is not too far from the thicker/cottonish tofu. ANyways it's also a spinich curry but I'll admit it's not exactly "mainstream" to use tofu.
BTW, are the fried crispy looking bits the tatters? What kind of bread is that too.

Junior said...

You know, lemon grass is kinds like lemon and if you use half a lemon(and squeeze the goods into it) its like a stick of lemon grass.
Yeah those are the tatters, I love these kind their great. The first time I had them was at this restaurant and none of the guys speak English so I had to figure it out myself and I got pretty darn close. The bread is Chapati.

Ha! So funny you mentioned palak paneer. Palak is spinich and paneer is cheese. In India we used to make the cheese from fermented milk. Gross I know, but surprisingly, it turned out good. (Tofu probably would taste better.) I would've asked JR to make it next time, but was too tired to even think about answering his inevitable, "What the hell is ...?" You can laugh JR, but you know it's true. ;) Cheers!

Is that what I say when people ask me strange cooking questions and stump me? I guess it is. Any way, the cheese sounds good, I wanna try making if from yogurt one day.

Son u need to go study the art of thai cooking again, cuz lemon grass and lemon are totally different and u can't use lemon in place of lemon grass!

Junior said...

Um why do you say that when this meal isn't even Thai?
