Today I made Thai Green Curry vegan for @Qurator's Hive Top Chef | Curry. I am lucky to find lemongrass from the people here but I used it already for green curry. Lemongrass and lime lime leaves are not sold in the market and stores in here Suriname.
When I want to make my country's food or other ASEAN food it’s very difficult to get ingredients. If I want I have to have my country's ingredients, have to call friend and drive all over city, and can not find sometimes.
Normally, this food is made with small eggplants but I not have it so I used vegetables I have here in Suriname.
