This was my first attempt at making Thai green curry, and this recipe was a good base. I think it heavily depends on the curry paste you have, b/c they vary significantly by flavor and heat. My green curry paste was not very hot, but was flavorful, so even though I increased the amount of curry paste, the dish was missing heat for me. Next time I'll add Thai chili peppers with this particular curry paste. I added lemongrass (cut into large pieces so you can easily remove them before eating), Thai basil (totally essential!!), carrots, and red pepper. I also tried making coconut rice by putting coconut milk into the rice cooker. It was mildly fragrant with coconut, so I might tweak with that more. With the added ingredients I think the curry had a lot more dimension, texture, and flavor, but needed more spicy/heat boost to compare to the Thai curries I had in Thailand! Will add more curry paste and chili pepper next time... or try a different brand of curry paste.
