Green Chillies for Thai Green Curry

Green curry, as the name says, needs a lot of green chillies to get natural green colour. Some might misunderstand that all green chillies can be used in the green curry but in order to get authentic and traditional flavours you need the right variety.

The above picture is the green chilli plant grows in my garden in Melbourne. The plant does not grow as big as in tropical region, due to the cold weather conditions, and the chillies aren’t as long as grown in warm climate (I’ll put the picture on when is available). 

From my cooking experiences, getting the right ingredients is crucially important to get original and authentic flavours.
