Recipe: How to make Thai Green Curry Fried Rice


Looking for an exciting dish to make at home that’s full of flavour? Become your own P’Nut Asian MasterChef by re-creating Matt Sinclair’s Green Curry Fried Rice recipe! This delightful combination of aromatic green curry paste, succulent prawns, and fresh vegetables creates a go-to dish that’s sure to have your mouth-watering with its unique blend of textures and flavour.


Cooking the perfect Green Curry Fried Rice starts with preparing an aromatic curry paste. The secret to this dish is in the unique combination of ingredients that bring the curry paste to life and the brand of sauces are important to ensure you get the same authentic flavour!

With Maesri green curry paste, Maeploy coconut milk, Squid fish sauce, tamarind pulp water, and white sugar, you’ll get the aroma and flavour you’re looking for! For the best result, make the curry paste ahead of time and ensure it has time to cool before using it.


  • 35g Maesri Green Curry Paste
  • 55g Maeploy coconut milk
  • 10g White sugar
  • 10g Squid fish sauce
  • 10g Tamarind pulp water


  • Begin by gently heating the coconut milk in a wok or skillet over medium heat for 60 seconds.
  • Add the green curry paste to the wok, stirring it in for about a minute. The coconut milk helps mellow the spiciness of the curry, while the paste adds a delightful, aromatic touch to the dish.
  • Incorporate the white sugar, squid fish sauce, and tamarind pulp water and mix everything together until the mixture comes to a boil.
  • Once your mixture has reached a boil, lower the heat and let it simmer for 2 minutes.
  • Transfer the sauce to a bowl and let it cool

HOT TIP: If you want to reduce the spice, add more coconut milk!
