If you like Thai green curry, or you are looking for a green curry recipe, this might be just something a little different for you to try.
This green curry fried rice is very simple to make just using a handful of ingredients. It takes about 10 minutes to prepare and cook.
Use with leftover cooked rice or packets of ready-cooked rice. Both options have a better texture for fried rice, plus, it keeps the recipe quick and easy to cook.
The recipe calls for Thai green curry paste but you could easily substitute for a red curry paste if you prefer. Likewise, if you don’t have leftover chicken you could choose a different protein such as cooked prawns or tofu.
We use some chopped-up fine green beans in this recipe but you can use whatever vegetables you have in the fridge. For example, you could peppers, aubergines, onion, carrots, bamboo shoots, or baby corn.
