Thai Green Curry with Pork dumplings

Thai Green Curry with Pork dumplings sounds like quite mouthful and that is exactly what it is…a scrumptious, packed-with-flavor-mouthful! Every time I make Thai food, the resounding response I get from my family is: “Mom, you should make this more often!”
Heaven only knows why I don’t make it more often, because it is just about the quickest and easiest food to prepare. Millions of people on the streets in Thailand cannot be wrong, can they?
Those of you who know me, will second that fact that I am quite a modest character and would much rather let the sun shine on someone else than on me, but sometimes, just sometimes, I have to pat myself on the back and say: “Damn girl, that was a might fine idea!” Making these little pork dumplings for my Thai Green Curry was a stroke of genius if I have to say so myself. I often(well, judged by my family, not often enough) make Thai Curries, and almost always use chicken or fish, sometimes I even stick to just vegetables, but  the idea to use pork has been mulling in my head for quite some time now. At first I thought of using pork tenderloin strips, but I walked past the pork mince in the shop the other day and “Eureka! I had an idea for a recipe!” I hope you like it as much as we did!
