Misses the taste of green curry....^^

Fresh coriander or cliantro or chinese parsley is a type of plant that you can use it for cooking or garnishing. The whole plant can be use from the leaves and stems for soup, seeds used as spices, roots used for cooking curry or other dishes.
Two kind of people, those who love this plant very much and those who hate it. Just because of the smell of the plant. Some of my friends would say it is 'xiang cai香菜~the fragrant vegetable' and some of them would say it is 'chou cai臭菜~the smelly vegetable'. Anyway, I say is a xiang cai, my family even my kids love it.
I misses the Green Curry taste. I came to know this Green Curry when we went for our honeymoon in Melbourne years ago. We stayed at our brother and sister in law's place. My sister in law cook this premix thai green curry for us, this taste was simply delicious. Until now I still misses the taste but I can't find the premix anywhere. I found this recipe from a website, I do some plus and minus and I tested it, it is wonderful. Now I can have Green Curry whenever I miss it.
