AUTHENTIC THAI CHICKEN CURRY. Extraordinary curry food.

There are two key steps that makes this authentic Thai chicken curry:

First, you have to cook the Thai curry for a few seconds all by itself prior to adding the coconut milk. This allows for the aroma of the spices to be released.

Second, you much julienne a few kaffir lime leaves and garnish the dish with them once you are done cooking it. Kaffir lime leaves have a very potent unique lime aroma and I don’t think you can omit or substitute such ingredient.
