Thai Green Curry With Jasmine Rice

For the fourth day of this Mega Blogging Marathon I am going to post a curry recipe from Thai cuisine. We both like Thai cuisine may be because of the flavors. Thai cuisine is rich in flavors and creamy texture of coconut milk. I have tried Thai red and yellow curries before and wanted to try this green curry from long time. Tried this green curry for few times with different vegetables and every time we enjoyed it . To day I used carrot, baby corn and two color capsicums. But you can use any other vegetables like cauliflower, broccoli, mushrooms, tofu, brinjal.
so let's check the recipe.....
Green chillies  ---  10
Shallots  ---  3
Garlic cloves  --  9 
Thai basil ---  few leaves
Galangal  ---  1 inch piece
Lemon grass  ---  3 inch piece (grated)
Lemon rind  ---  1/4 tea sp
Coriander roots  ---  1/2 cup
Coriander seeds  ---  2 tea sp
Cumin seeds  ---  2 teasp
Salt to taste
To make a paste:
Grind all above green curry paste ingredients with little water in to a fine paste and leave a side..
