About this recipe: This recipe is a simplified version of green curry using pre-made curry paste, often found fresh in markets, or in jars at the supermarket. This recipe calls for chicken, but beef or pork goes well, too. Serve in a communal bowl garnished with the chillies and basil. Serve with steamed jasmine rice.
