Thai Green Curry with Prawns

A quick and easy interpretation of Thai green curry. The wonderful thing about Thai food is the incredible flavour and the speed at which dishes can be prepared. Thai green curry is one of Thailand's signature dishes. It is generally a fiery dish but you can tone down the chilli heat by reducing the amount of green curry paste used in the recipe.
