Chicken feet thai green curry over rice noodles
now this is a green curry! finally correcting my unintentional extended instagram hiatus to share this thai 🇹🇭 green curry (แกงเขียวหวาน) that i made tonight in an effort to satisfy cravings i’ve been having for the past few days.
it’s loaded with chicken ‘drumette’ wings 🍗 , an extra-generous dose of chicken feet, and hunks of congealed pig’s blood - in my book, all essentials for a truly hearty and authentically street-food-worthy green curry.
naturally there’s also tonnes of baby aubergines 🍆, a handful of pea aubergines (which i don’t always bother with, but i thought i’d go for it today), 10 or so sliced red bird’s eye chillies 🌶 for a pop of colour, a few torn kaffir lime leaves (another ingredient i’ve always disagreed with appearing in anything but the true southern thai version of this dish, but which i might be slowly caving in to), and of course the obligatory greedy fistful of freshly plucked horapa โหระพา thai sweet basil 🌿 leaves. and it’s served over a bed of kanom jeen ขนมจีน fermented rice noodles 🍜 just for a bit more of a change from my norm (the leftovers will be great over rice for lunch tomorrow). it’s all looking (and tasting!) rather d**n fit, even if i do say so myself!
