MESS OF THE WEEK (2) Phuket, Just make a Thai Green Curry

Hello food....

Tasty tasty thai green curry. My dad's genius name! I hope it doesn't offend anyone! The recipe is done with prawns, but it's fantasmical to do with fish, nice meaty white fish like Monkfish, it just takes on the flavours ridiculously well, or use chicken. Or can do it vegetarian style, using some potatoes to give it some substance and various green veg that you like! Also, either take out or add more chillies depending on how spicy you like the curry. This makes a medium spiced one! :) Enjoy!
