12. Thai Green Curry Roast Chicken
While making your own green curry paste is very rewarding (and delicious), unless you can find the authentic ingredients, it’s really not worth it. The paste needs to be made in a mortar and pestle for best results, so you get the most flavor out of the ingredients. I have made it in a mini processor before, and while it was faster, the results were just OK, and definitely not the same as when you use a mortar and pestle. But if you can find a good curry paste in the store, then you can obviously save the time and effort of making it at home.Click here for the recipe: https://www.theflavorbender.com/green-curry-roast-chicken/
