How you will cook this Thai Green Curry
1. In a saucepan, bring water to boil and add Thai Sticky Rice. This will be cooked for 15-20 minutes. For 100grams of rice (one person) 2-3 cups of boiling water will suffice. More water can be added later depending on preference
2. In a wok, add the tablespoon of coconut oil and simmer gently. Coat the Wok in the oil once it has melted.
3. On the meat chopping board and using a separate meat knife or meat scissors, cut the chicken breasts into small bite-size chunks. (Ensure hands are washed after.)
4. Add the chicken to the Wok, cook through and ensure that the chicken no longer bears pink. This will take roughly 10 minutes (for optimal results, keep the temperature low to ensure that the chicken remains succulent
5. Using the vegetable Chopping board and the vegetable knife, cut the garlic and onion finely, the pepper into strips, the garlic, the chillies and mushrooms
6. Now add all the vegetables to the Wok and fry lightly until the vegetables have cooked through (onion and mushrooms brown)
7. Add the Coconut Milk and Thai Green Paste into the Wok.
8. Simmer for a further 15 minutes on a very low heat. This will let the garlic, green curry paste and coconut milk infuse into the chicken and vegtables
9. Revert back to the Thai Sticky Rice and ensure that all the water has absorbed and the rice is sticky and cooked through. It should not appear hard. If this is the case and if all the water has been absorbed, add some more water.
10. Once at the desired consistency, serve the rice.
11. Serve the Thai green Curry and place over the rice.
12. The Chicken Vegetable Medley and Sweet Potato Mash is now served and ready to be enjoyed!
13. Optional: Place in fridge if being eaten later
