0/4 Instructions
  • For the curry paste, place all the ingredients into a food processor and blitz to a paste. You can use the paste straight away or store in a jar in the fridge for 3 weeks (for this recipe you only require 2 tbsp of paste).
  • Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan. Add 2 tbsp green curry paste and sugar, cook on a high heat for about a minute, stirring continuously. Reduce the heat and stir in the chicken and lime leaves until coated in the paste. Add the coconut milk, fish sauce and bring to a simmer. Cook for 25-30 minutes until thickened slightly.
  • Stir in the coriander and lime juice. For the last 3-4 minutes add the beans until tender. Taste for seasoning - add more fish sauce if needed.
  • Leave the curry to rest for a few minutes so the sauce becomes creamier. Serve with lots of fragrant Thai jasmine rice. Enjoy!


  • If you are unable to find kaffir lime leaves use the grated zest of an extra lime.
  • If your curry tastes too spicy add some more sugar.
  • If the curry is not spicy enough fry a little more curry paste in some oil for a minute and add to the sauce.
