    Hey shouldnt Thai Green Curry be done in Basil ?
    You've explained the indianized version of Thai curry.. It does not have coriander, it has Basil ..

    I used to do the same way and call it thai.. but then my husband would plainly call it "kootu" , unintentionally insulting me .. LOL ..

    @ranchu

    You can use basil leaves too . It all depends on the flavour you get out of each leaves . Even you can try with thyme leaves , parsley .. Each and every leaf gives u a different flavor for the food . Of course as u said its more or like resembles our avial .

    My intention of using coriander is that most of our Indians in India do use coriander leaves rather than basil. I do find only slight difference in the taste when i used coriander leaves rather than basil leaves.

    You can add bamboo stripes too and any vegetables of your choice. Each and every vegetable do give u different taste for the curry :).
