Thai veg green curry recipe made with green curry paste made from scratch. A vegetarian / vegan friendly recipe. Recipe with step by step pictures.



For the curry paste

  • 1/2 inch peel of kaffir lime skin or regular lime / lemon skin
  • 45 kaffir lime leaves
  • 23 stalks lemon grass
  • 1/2 of a green bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup coriander leaves
  • 1 inch piece galangal
  • 1/2 inch piece ginger
  • 67 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup onion
  • 46 green chillies
  • 5 basil leaves

Other Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoon oil
  • 1 seasoning cube
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon palm sugar
  • 500 grams mixed vegetables of your choice
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper powder
  • 45 thai chillies
  • 23 kaffir lime leaves
  • 1 cup thick coconut milk
  • 1 cup bell pepper, cubed (use a mix of green, red and yellow peppers)
  • 56 basil leaves


  1. Add in all the ingredients under curry paste to a mixie. Add a little water and grind to a smooth paste. Set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a pan and add in the ground paste. Saute for 5-6 minutes till the paste is almost dry.
  3. Add in a seasoning cube (stock cube) and the salt. Instead of seasoning cube, you can use vegetable stock too.
  4. Add in the palm sugar.
  5. Prep the veggies and get them ready. The veggies you add is totally your choice. I have used Beans, carrot, bell peppers and green peas today. You can also add bamboo shoots, edamame, tofu, sprouts, mushroom, spinach etc…
  6. Once the curry paste is cooked and almost dry, add in the black pepper, remaining veggies and a cup of water. I add beans and carrots first as they take longer time to cook than other veggies. Cover the pan and cook for ten minutes.
  7. Then add in the cabbage and green peas and simmer the curry for five minutes. Add in the Thai chillies and kaffir lime leaves.
  8. Finally add in the coconut milk, bell peppers and basil. Simmer for a minute. Do not cook for long. Thai green curry is ready.
