Microwave Thai Green Curry in a Mug

Save Recipe

Hi Bold Bakers!

Thailand is a country that does curry so well. Hands down, Thai Green Curry is a meal I could eat everyday for the rest of my life. The beauty of this Microwave Thai Green Curry in a Mug is there are no pots and pans needed. The sauce, noodles and vegetables are all cooked to perfection in a mug in a fraction of the time it normally takes.

Customize this recipe to suit your diet and flavor profile. Substitute green curry paste for red for a hotter curry. Add in cooked protein like chicken or even fish. Feel free also to add in as much veggies and variety as you like. This is not a recipe that you need to stay within the lines.

Bold Baking Tips for Mug Meals

The cook time is based on my microwave which is 1200 Watts so your cook time may vary depending on the wattage of your microwave. When in doubt check your mug meal after 45 seconds just to make sure it is cooking ok. You can always cook it for 30 second intervals if you wish. Also, the mugs I use are small, roughly 6oz (¾ /1 cup) but feel free to use bigger.

    Hi Gemma,

    Could you use couscous or quinoa instead of noodles in the mug meal?

    • Gemma Stafford on June 26, 2018 at 9:05 pm

      Yes, you sure can. Cous cous will cook quickly I’m not sure about Quinoa however .

      Gemma.

    I love all your recipes, Gemma! I was wondering about a low carb version of this. I haven’t tried it yet, but I was thinking of maybe of using either riced cauliflower or zucchini strips for the noodles. I’m guessing the cauliflower would work better.
    And I guess I kinda just answered my own question as to which is better. BUT have you ever used zucchini in your recipes? Do they make mug meals too juicy?

    • Gemma Stafford on April 7, 2018 at 2:32 pm

      Thank you so much! I’m really glad to hear that.

      Yes you can add either of those in with the rest of the ingredients and cook for the time I gave. They will not take long to cook at all.

      I haven’t use those noodles in this recipe but It won’t make it juicy 🙂
      Gemma.

    I was wondering if I could substitute cooked rice instead of noodles.

    • Gemma Stafford on October 6, 2017 at 1:50 am

      Hi ally,
      sure you can! Just remember that rice is a vulnerable food, and should be cooked and consumed within a day or so. Refrigerate after cooking if you mean to use it the following day. then all will be well,
      Gemma 🙂

    Hi Gemma. I made this tonight and used 1 tablespoon of green curry paste as per the recipe and it was that spicey we couldn’t eat it. Is it meant to be a tablespoon or teaspoon.

    • Gemma Stafford on July 3, 2017 at 2:33 am

      Hi Fiona,
      I have to apologize, it seems that this recipe is inaccurate, it should read one teaspoon, and I have now corrected this.
      Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention, I am sorry that you were unable to enjoy this recipe,
      Gemma 🙂

  6. Annie on June 12, 2017 at 1:02 pm

    Can I use curry powder instead of curry paste?

    • Gemma Stafford on June 12, 2017 at 2:33 pm

      sure you can 🙂

  7. soapsuds on June 10, 2017 at 9:36 am

    Could one add an ounce of cooked chicken?

    • Gemma Stafford on June 11, 2017 at 2:40 am

      Hi there,
      Yes, freshly cooked chicken will be good! Be careful about re-heating foods, they need to be thoroughly cooked before eating,
      Gemma 🙂
