Green Curry Pasta

Green Curry Pasta
Fushion food at its best – Green curry (chicken & prawns) with farfalle pasta

One of the reasons why I love green curry is because not only is it nice enjoyed with white rice, it is also nice with pasta as a one-dish meal. I basically boil some pasta, arrange them on a plate, and ladle green curry over the pasta. The curry as you can see is slightly more soupy than the usual green curry – the way I like it, when having it with pasta. I went to Bangkok in February this year and stuffed myself silly with the yummy and affordable Thai food there. Even though it’s been three months, I still miss Thai food a lot. This is one of the dishes which I enjoyed in Bangkok and so I tried to recreate it at home.
