I've completed the Thai Curry Challenge, and posted it on page 2 of the thread.
This was an awesome challenge, as I love curry and have made many Indian curries from scratch and without a "recipe". But Thai curry has so many more elements - this was a challenge and it was FUN!!!
My inspiration was a Thai curry that I had eaten in a really touristy beach restaurant when we lived in Costa Rica. Most of their food was just blah, but their curry dish was simply amazing. I'd always wanted to replicate it, and prior attempts were good but nothing to write home about! This new creation, though, might even be a little better than the inspiration!
I created a green curry with chicken, fish sauce, eggplant, kabocha squash, turmeric, and lemongrass. What really makes this curry special is the use of fresh galangal and kaffir lime leaves. I could tell from the moment they hit the pan that they would make all the difference. I didnt' include the recipe for the green curry paste, because I already have a recipe on Zazz for that.
Here's a link to my recipe: http://www.justapinch.com/recipes/main-course/other-main-course/thai-green-curry-with-chicken-and-eggplant.html
And now for the prep and final dish!
