Rosa's Green Curry

This green curry recipe was one of the first dishes chef Saiphin ever learned how to make. It's always been on our menu from day one and our fans' favourite! A classic Thai green curry must have three distinct flavours - sweet, salty, with a spicy kick at the end. It's one of the easiest curries to make and works really well with Western hardy vegetables.
