This delicious green Thai curry is a total showstopper. But watch put, because it can be a little spicy. If you are particularly sensitive to spice, make sure you buy a less spicy green Thai curry paste. Alternatively, you can use less green Thai curry paste or serve on a bed of white rice to dilute the intensity of the spiciness. Trust me, this curry is worth the spiciness - it's aromas will pull you in even before you sit down to eat, and you won't be able to get enough! You can keep the curry in the fridge in an airtight container for up to four days.
