Gaeng (curry), Keow (green), Keow (sweet), or Thai green curry derives its green colour from the green chillis and fragrant ingredients used in its preparation (sweet green refers to the pale green colour). The spicy chillis are counterbalanced by the sweet honey and salty fish sauce that used in this recipe. Thai sweet basil gives a traditional extra flavour, but if you love coriander add this as well as or as an addition. Thai Green Curry is a surprisingly recent phenomena, thought to have been influenced by India cooking philosophy as recently as the 1900's. The key to the dish is the paste which must be fresh. We have spent years perfecting the recipe to bring it to you for the first time under the Tyga brand.

Shopping list

  • 600g chicken breast (or tofu)
  • 400ml coconut milk
  • 125g shallots (approx qty 3-4)
  • 30g green chillies (approx 6)
  • 1x red bell pepper
  • 3 tbs rapeseed/vegetable/olive oil
  • 1 tbs honey (or palm sugar, sugar)
  • Thai sweet basil leaves (preferable but not essential)

Let's cook!


  1. Dice the chicken into bite size chunks/Cut Tofu into chunks.
  2. De-seed and slice the red bell pepper into thin strips.
  3. If using, roughly chop the Thai sweet basil leaves.

Making the Thai Green Paste (use a small blender):

  1. Remove the outer layer skin from the shallots and roughly chop into quarters.
  2. Remove the chilli stalks. If you like the sauce spicy hot just add the chills. Remove the seeds from half of the chillis for medium, and all of the seeds for a gentle heat. If you like the sauce really mild, remove the seeds from all of the chillis. For a greener sauce add one or two larger, milder green chillis and less of the Thai or Birdseye.
  3. Into a blender add: the shallots, chillis, Ginger & Garlic Paste, Fragrant Paste and Tyga 40. Blend all of these ingredients together to make your Thai green paste.


  1. In a shallow pan, on a medium heat add 3 tbs oil and add the Thai Green Paste. Fry for 4 minutes stirring continuously to release the flavours from the paste into the oil.
  2. Add the Coconut milk & 200 ml water to the pan and stir well into the paste for 2 minutes. Do not add water if using tofu.
  3. Add the diced chicken, fish sauce and honey and stir well. Just add the Fish Sauce and honey and stir well if using tofu.
  4. Bring back to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Skip this step if using tofu.
  5. Add the sliced red bell pepper and cook for a further 3 minutes. Add diced tofu along with the pepper.
  6. If using, add the thai sweet basil and cook for a further 2 minutes.
  7. Remove from the heat and rest for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  8. Serve with rice.
