I have never had green curry before I can't think why as we love curry in our house, and this was nice but not a hot curry which is a nice change. One thing it had was lots of flavour the lemon grass and the coriander were so fragrant and fresh tasting. I do like that it used chicken thighs they have much more flavour. My curry leaves were dried as I couldn't find fresh, and I served it over jasmine rice. Thank you for posting. Made for ZWT#6 2010
