In this class we'll make a paste by hand using authentic ingredients and spices, then transform this into an aromatic green curry which can be made with chicken or vegetables. We'll demonstrate how to balance the sweet, salty, spicy and sour flavours that Thai cuisine is famous for, and also how to steam perfect sticky rice to accompany the curry.

What you’ll learn:

  • Making a curry paste
  • Balancing flavours in an aromatic curry
  • Rice cooking

Serves: 2 people

Duration: This class will last approximately 1 hour 30 minutes.

Prepare ahead instructions: Prepare ahead for this course by soaking the sticky rice in cold water 3 hours before the class begins, and chopping the chicken thighs into bite sized chunks (or vegetables, if making a vegetarian/vegan curry).

Please have all your other ingredients weighed out and ready along with the equipment you’ll need.
