Green Curry Shrimp (Kaeng Kaew Hwan Ghoong)

Another Thai menu that I tasted. It happened that I bought a ready use curry paste from Asian shop in Vienna. It turned out very spice but taste is delicious. So I just added some vegetables and the meat. But next time, I promised to make the green paste myself so I can adjust the spiciness 🙂
