    First cook in the Discada tonight. If you don't have one, you really should get one. This thing is awesome! I will be using this often!

    I make green curry paste often. It's a bit time consuming but tasty.


    Here's the curry paste. You can make it up a day or two in advance.

    * 1/2 to 1 green chili, sliced

    * 1/4 cup shallot OR purple onion, diced

    * 3-4 cloves garlic, minced

    * 1 thumb-size ginger, grated

    * 1 stalk minced lemongrass , minced

    * 1/2 tsp. ground coriander

    * 1/2 tsp. ground cumin

    * 3/4 to 1 tsp. shrimp paste OR 1 extra Tbsp fish sauce

    * 1 (loose) cup fresh coriander/cilantro leaves and stems, chopped

    * 1/2 tsp. ground white pepper, available in most spice sections

    * 2.5 Tbsp. fish sauce

    * 1 tsp. brown sugar

    * 1 Tbsp. lime juice

    * 1/4 can coconut milk

    The curry paste goes in towards the end of the process. If using beef or chicken I stir fry those first, then add veggies. If using shrimp or tofu, I stir fry the veggies then add those.

    Then the curry paste, plus a can of coconut milk. Last you add Thai basil, good squeeze of lime and any other hot spices you want.

    Serve.

    Looks great Case.

    I assume that there is different heat ranges? Like the edge is cooler? To hold meats warm till they get mixed back in.

    Love Green Curry! I do a simple Aspragus, Eggplant and Scallop version. There is something in the Curry that makes the Asparagus flavor really pop!...JJ

    Yes exactly Adam. That's why the chicken is off to the side. I did three mega breasts. And way too many veggies. I could've tripled the recipe and still had plenty of room. With this disc I could easily feed 25-30 people.

    Going to be fun! Fajitas are a calling!

    Thanks Dave! The gribeness was an added bonus and a great snack for the cook! I now know how I'll be making schmaltz in the future. The disc is perfect for rendering chicken fat and skin.

    Yeah the woody veggies are great in curry. I looked at the Asparagus when I was buying the veggies, but it was crap. The bamboo shoots added that woods texture.

    So whose coming out/down to Oregon in September for the Paulina wooden boat gathering? We're doing stir fry in the woods this year for our Saturday evening group meal. Going to be fun. Everyone is invited!

    Thank you! It's tasty stuff! Takes time to prep though so be prepared! Prep the curry paste, then chop your veggies you want in the curry, then your meat, if you are adding meat.

    It's super tasty Kevin! If you like gumbo, etiuffee, you'd like curry.

    Isn't curry yellow and hot! Indian dish which thrives in the British colonies? Ahhhhh the British, the only people who figured out how drinking could save them from malaria? You gotta love their perspective. I bet they could figure out how to cure the cold but the ingredients are probably illegal!.

    Curry can be green, yellow, or red. It ranges in flavor. The green that I make is lemongrass, coconut, sweet, salty and spicy. It can be from India, Thailand, Vietnam,. So there's a wide variety of flavor profiles.
