In this Thai green curry recipe (แกงเขียวหวานไก่) I decided to record my mother in law, who is one of the best Thai home cooks I know. Somehow she remembers all the ingredients in each Thai dish all from her head and doesn’t use any measurements. So I filmed here, narrated this Thai green curry chicken recipe, and wrote down all the ingredients and amounts she added.
Here are the Thai green curry ingredients you’ll need:
For the green curry chicken:
1 whole chicken – 1.4 kg. in total weight (ไก่บ้าน) – I think a free range chicken gives you the best Thai green curry taste
2 cups of water to first boil the chicken
green curry paste (เครื่องแกงเขียวหวาน)
2 – 3 cups of coconut cream (หัวกะทิ) –
6 – 10 Thai eggplant (มะเขือเปราะ)
6 – 10 stems of Thai sweet basil (โหระพา)
2 red spur chilies
20 kaffir lime leaves (ใบมะกรูด)
For the green curry paste (เครื่องแกงเขียวหวาน)
150 grams Thai green chilies (พริกขี้หนูเขียว)
1 head garlic (กระเทียม)
3 shallots – small shallots about 2 tbsp in total (หอมแดง)
1 thumb sized chunk of galangal (ข่า) –
5 cilantro roots (รากผักชี) coriander
1 kaffir lime – just the peel (ผิวมะกรูด)
2 stalks lemongrass (ตะไคร้)
1 tbsp. white peppercorns (พริกไทยขาว) –
1 tsp. coriander seed (ลูกผักชี) –
1 tsp. cumin seed (ยี่หร่า) –
1 tsp. salt (เกลือ)
1 tbsp. shrimp paste (กะปิ) –

In order to make this Thai green curry recipe, you first prepare all your ingredients to pound. Then pound the green curry paste. This is the most time consuming part of making this recipe, but it’s well worth the effort to pound it by hand as all the oils and aromas will be released. It took me about 1.5 hours to pound the green curry paste.
Next step is to clean and chop up your chicken. We used a whole free range chicken for this recipe, but you could also use already cut up chicken pieces.
The final step in making this authentic Thai green curry recipe is to boil the chicken with the curry paste and water, then combine it with coconut cream and the eggplant.
If you follow these steps and use all the Thai ingredients, you’ll have one of the best bowls of Thai green curry you’ll ever have!
