Rather than buy a ready made curry, we wanted to see how easy it was to make our own.
We bought this Thai green curry paste - by Thai Taste - and followed the recipe on the pot. It was less expensive than some other brands, and the 200g pot makes 10-12 servings. Not bad. But that's not all, I was very surprised at how few calories the paste contained.
I haven't been asked to write a review about this product. It's just that when I find something that really 'works' for us, I love to spread the word.
For this recipe - which serves two hungry people, but will spread to three, I picked up 2 chicken breasts and a pack of baby sweetcorn/sugar snap peas. We used 80g of dried basmati rice between us. A rough calorie count (using 60g of the Thai paste) works out at under 500 calories each if sharing between two people, or 360 calories if sharing between three people for a light lunch perhaps.
And the flavour - well, we were quite taken aback at just how good this was. The authentic Thai flavours with its gentle heat soon had us emptying our plates. I'm sure we'll be eating this again very soon, and trying it with chicken thighs or prawns.
REMEMBER: We all have a calorie allowance - do you know yours?
We began our weight loss journey in January 2011 - and began our blog in June 2011. Here's a link to the first post. (here's the link).
