Authentic Thai Green Curry
This “Authentic Thai Green Curry” has tender-cooked beef and eggplants in a lusciously creamy coconut sauce with the aroma of fresh basil!
The bright green Thai Curry paste brings in a refreshing herbaceous flavor. The curry has a nutty, sweet taste (owing to coconut milk) with a hint of salty & zingy taste. This curry is relatively mild compared to red Thai Curry, and its sauce has a thinner consistency.

1½ Tbsp coconut oil
1 small onion (sliced thinly)
2-3 garlic cloves (minced)
1 Tbsp Thai green curry paste
1 cup | 200ml coconut milk (divided)
2x pack of 1 serve 30g beef cube
½ cup beef stock
¼ eggplant (sliced)
½ red bell pepper (de-seeded and chopped)
Salt (to taste)
1 lime wedge
¼ cup Thai basil leaves (for serving)
Drizzle the coconut oil in a wok and heat it over a medium-high flame.
Add the sliced onion and cook for 5 mins on medium heat until softened.
Add the garlic and cook until fragrant. After that, add the Thai curry paste followed by ¼ cup of coconut milk. Stir cook for 1 minute.
Meanwhile, transfer the beef cubes to a bowl. Pour enough water to fully immerse the meat in it and keep aside to rehydrate for 20 minutes.
Then, drain the water and add the beef cubes into the wok. Cook for 2-4 mins by stirring well so that the spice mix coat the beef cubes.
Pour the beef stock and let it boil over high heat. Then, simmer for 5-6 mins on medium-low heat.
Now, pour ½ cup of coconut milk and add the sliced eggplants. Stir it, cover the wok, and simmer for 6-8 minutes until the eggplants are fork-tender.
Next, add the chopped bell pepper, season with salt, and squeeze the lime juice. Mix it, cover, and simmer for 2-3 mins.
Lastly, turn off the stove and stir in the remaining ¼ cup of coconut milk.
Serve the authentic Thai green curry garnished with Thai basil leaves.
You can skip the salt and infuse the salty taste in the curry using fish sauce.
