This is my version of comfort food. A bowl of delicious green curry over steamed rice. Yumm! One great feature about green curry is that you can add just about any kind of vegetable to it. Whatever is in season, or whatever vegetable you have in your fridge. You’ll be surprised at how easy it is to make.

Here’s another delicious recipe from Helen at Scrummy Lane! This is one of my favorite Thai dishes. My favorite part is the fried egg on the top. For most South-East Asian dishes, a fried egg is usually cooked over high heat in a wok with lots of oil. This allows the sides to get crispy. This adds so much texture to the dish. Amazing!
