Thai Green Curry

Thai Green Curry

Before I made this recipe, I was a little intimidated by Thai cuisine, to be honest. No Indian-style onion-ginger-garlic base? No chopped tomatoes?! What's more, I was put off by the number of Thai green curry recipes out there. How could I possibly make something different?
