Phuket’s Exquisite Thai Green Curry – A taste of Anantara Vacation Club at home

Phuket’s Exquisite Thai Green Curry

Today’s special dish is brought to you by Chef Boonson Pilong: Gaeng Kiew Waan Gai (Green Curry). A favorite at Chaam Restaurant in Phuket Mai Khao, this is your chance to learn how to prepare it when you are back home. This spicy, sweet and pungent curry will delight your family and bring the aromas and flavors of Thailand to your home.


Per person:

50g Green Curry Paste*

190g Chicken Breast

70g Eggplant (small purple)

80g Eggplant (Chao Praya)

40g Sweet Basil

40g Chili Peppers (large red)

150g Coconut milk

20g Palm Sugar

20g Fish sauce

20g White Soya Sauce

For the green curry paste:

1 stalk Lemongrass, minced

1-3 Green Chili Peppers, sliced

1 Shallot, sliced

4-5 Garlic Cloves

1 thumb-size piece of Ginger, thinly sliced

1/2 cup chopped fresh Coriander/Cilantro leaves

1/2 cup fresh Basil

1/2 tsp. ground Cumin

1/2 tsp. ground White Pepper

1/2 tsp. ground Coriander

3 Tbsp. Fish Sauce

1 tsp. Shrimp Paste

2 Tbsp. Lime Juice

1 tsp. brown sugar

4 Tbsp. Coconut Milk (enough to blend ingredients)


  1. First prepare the green curry paste: blend all ingredients with a blender or mortar. If too salty, squeeze additional lime or lemon to taste.
  2. Heat cooking oil in small pan and add the Green Curry Paste and coconut milk. Toss in the Eggplants and Chilies, simmering slowly in to infuse the coconut milk
  3. Add the Chicken breast, followed by fish sauce, soya sauce and palm sugar.
  4. Simmer gently to dissolve the palm sugar and season to taste. Garnish with some sweet basil and fresh Chilies, serve and enjoy!

Pairing Recommendations:

This dish is spicy, with a slight touch of sweetness, and calls for a wine to tame the heat. If you enjoy sparkling wines, try a Champagne Demi-Sec —the bit of residual sugar will quench the fire of the chilies while the bubbles will cleanse and refresh the palate. Green Curry also pairs well with a Gewürztraminer (German for “spicy grape”).
