Green Curry Penne Rigate

Ingredients (serves 3 persons)


Lobo Green Curry Paste 1 packet
Olive oil 3 tablespoons
Coconut milk 1 cup
Peeled and deveined shrimps 150 g (5.25 oz)
Sliced squid 120 g (4.2 oz)
Palm sugar 1 tablespoon
Boiled penne rigate 300 g (10.5 oz)
Thai apple eggplant (or avocado) 1 cup
Sweet basil leaves 2 cups
Chopped red chili


Preparation


Most westerners love Green Curry at first taste. This is made mainly from fresh green chilli, the hottest of all curries. Just be prepared for a hot, yet delightful, taste.

  • Stir Green Curry Paste in olive oil until aromatic. Slowly pour in coconut milk.
  • Add shrimps and squid and flavour with fish sauce and palm sugar. Stir until well blended.
  • Add boiled penne rigate, followed by Thai apple eggplant and sweet basil leaves. Stir at medium heat.
  • Serve garnished with kaffir lime leaves and red chili.


Tips

  • Do not boil pasta for longer than 10-15 minutes as it will cook more when stirred in the skillet.
  • When removed, shake the pasta in cold water, drain and dredge in vegetable oil or olive oil to prevent the threads from sticking together.
  • You can try other kinds of pasta for variety.
  • If Thai apple eggplant cannot be sourced, avocado is an interesting alternative as it is rich in flavour.
