Serving: 4


  • 2 tablespoons green curry paste
  • 1 can (14 oz) coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 lb chicken breast or thighs, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup green beans, trimmed
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 2 small eggplants, cut into cubes
  • 1 cup bamboo shoots
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 cup Thai basil leaves

  1. Prepare Curry Base:
    • Heat the vegetable oil in a large pan or wok over medium heat. Add the green curry paste and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
    • Pour in half of the coconut milk, stirring constantly until the oil begins to separate.
  2. Cook Protein:
    • Add the sliced chicken and stir to coat. Cook for 3-4 minutes until the chicken is partially cooked through.
  3. Add Vegetables and Simmer:
    • Pour in the remaining coconut milk, then add the green beans, red bell pepper, eggplants, and bamboo shoots. Stir in the fish sauce and brown sugar. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10-15 minutes until the chicken is fully cooked and the vegetables are tender.
  4. Finish and Serve:
    • Add Thai basil leaves and lime juice. Adjust seasoning with more fish sauce or sugar to taste. Serve hot with jasmine rice.


  • Substitute chicken with shrimp or tofu for a different variation.
  • Adjust the curry paste based on your spice preference.
  • If Thai basil is unavailable, use cilantro or regular basil.
