How to make perfect Thai green curry | Life and style | The GuardianG reen curry has not aged well on these damp and chilly shores. Like many of us, it's thickened a bit over the years, and lost its edge. No longer the zingy arriviste which first startled our jalfrezi-jaded taste buds with its arresting combination of sour, sweet, salt and heat, with typical British aplomb, we've Anglicised it into creamy, sugary comfort food. The best way to get reacquainted with the real thing is by giving the ready meals and the takeaways a miss, and getting back to basics in the kitchen. The backbone of a green curry paste is, of course, the chillies which give it its colour — although, truth be told, most authentic pastes are more of a murky beige. As well as heat, you need something salty — shrimp paste, or fish sauce — and some aromatics, like lemongrass and galangal, as well as the shallots and garlic which give the curry pungency and depth.
