Thai Green Curry (Kaeng Kheo Waan)

Are you in a funk? I am in an Indian-Kashmiri cuisine funk, which I really needed to get out of. How to change this? Obviously cook something DIFFERENT AND DELICIOUS!! I decided to make Thai Green Curry, not too heavy and perfect for lunch. Plus my relative is here (Thailand) from India so she needs to and want to try all awesome Thai dishes. Also today my family eats vegetarian, so no meat in our curry today. Still tasty!! Anyways, ready for the recipe? Lets go!!
