Lovers of chicken dishes are always ready to try out unique preparations and flavours in it. Chef Aswini Geetha Gopalakrishnan introduces a special Thai green chicken curry in which three different types of eggplants are added. Some may wonder whether eggplants go well with chicken. However, those who have tasted this Thai green chicken curry vow that it indeed is a winning combination.
This special chicken curry is called Gaeng Kiew Wan Gai in the Thai language. However, it is often called Thai green chicken curry as the sauce or gravy of this dish is a distinct and pleasant green colour. Fresh green chillies and fragrant kaffir lime leaves give the flavoursome curry paste, its amazing green hue. The sweetness from the coconut milk perfectly cuts through the spiciness as well. Galangal and lemon grass too are added for some extra punch of flavours.
