Thai Basil-Coconut Shrimps Curry – Aromatic It Is!

Thai Basil-Coconut Shrimps Curry – Aromatic It Is!

Also known as: Thai Green Curry with Shrimps, Thai Coconut Shrimps Curry.

Honestly, I couldn’t recall the exact recipe of the above pictures. I know, it sounds ridiculous…but I whipped this several months ago during a cold winter-spring night. Oh, I was so excited to spot a fresh bunch of basil leaves in the market and I was immediately put into action. Even though I was so reluctant to note down what I did with the ingredients…I vividly remember how it tasted along with jasmine rice. Trust me, ladies…the curry was mind blowingly good, an aromatic treat in fact:) Well, after all it isn’t that hard to recreate my recipe, you know! I usually have my own thumb rule and I never mess with it. So here you go, this is how I would have done it!!!! Hopefully:)
