Be My Guest – Thai Green Curry

PinThings have been moving at a much slower pace than I expected this year. But if you ask me how I feel about it, I feel absolutely fine. 🙂 My mind is relaxed because I am away from pressurizing myself unnecessary regarding the blog. I have finally learned to slow down, and it feels really good. When priorities change in life, you need to balance out so that you don’t tend to burn out yourself. It takes time to learn, but definitely not impossible…


It’s been long since I have had a guest on the blog. I have not been inviting anybody as such too. Everybody is tied up with many things and sometimes even meeting time commitments becomes a pressure on them. So when I was wondering whether to give this series a stop, I receive an email from Spoorthy regarding the “Be My Guest” segment. I have received emails like hers before and they have all got a space on the blog. New bloggers need a lot of encouragement and I am always game for it.


Spoorthy is an Indian IT professional settled in Germany and blogs on “The Experimental Foodies” during her spare time. Her’s is a really new blog, and she has just started doing posts of late. She did provide her post in very short notice, despite being on her holidays. I guess let me pass on the podium to her without blabbering too much… 🙂




Hi, I am Spoorthy Sreenivasan an Indian, based in Germany. I am a software engineer by profession and a blogger and chef by passion. I am totally new to the blogging world. Do check out my recipes on “The Experimental Foodie.”


I love traveling and I am always enthusiastic and curious to learn and try out some authentic recipes from each of the places that I visit. I try to give an Indian twist to each of these recipes after I get back home.


I visited Bangkok in Thailand for New Year’s Eve this year and was lucky enough to learn this amazing Thai curry recipe from my Airbnb host there. My husband and I loved their recipe and later when we tried the recipe at home with an Indian twist, we found that it gave it so much more flavour and had an amazing aroma. I would love to hear your opinion once you try this lip smacking sumptuous curry. Here’s the recipe:

  1. I have always stayed away from making thai curry pastes. Thai green curry is one of my favorite thai curries.
