My mum and I have been cooking this curry for years. Although Thai in origin, it has become a regular feature in Australian cooking. I laughed when I read a book about an Australian girl living in Paris who cooked green chicken Curry for her startled Parisian friends. I laughed because I probably would have done the same thing! That or a lamb roast!
