Thai Green Chicken Curry History:
Green curry comes from Tamil. It means "many spices are cooked together".
According to Indian folklore, curry was created by Sakyamuni, the Buddha.
Because of its pungency and fragrance, it can help to hide the flavour of meat like mutton, thus make the meal enjoyable for Indians who don't eat pork and beef.
In the 17th century, curry first spread widely in Southeast Asia and other places
Thai cooks added a lot of coconut milk into the green curry to neutralize the spicy taste of curry itself, thus creating a softer and milder taste.
The reason why green curry is green is that green condiments such as green lemon peel and green pepper are added. It tastes spicy and is usually used with chicken and vegetables.
