Love for Thai Cuisine

We went to Thailand to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. It was so much fun. I enjoyed the delicious thai food out there. But, the thai food we eat in India is very different than the thai food we ate in Thailand. Some of my all time favorite thai dishes are the red thai curry chicken, the green thai curry chicken and the thai mixed vegetables. So after a lot of experimenting I have tried to re-create these recipes adding my personal touch to them. Believe me, they are so good and delicious and so easy to make that you would also start loving thai cuisine.

So here goes the recipie.
