I To make the green curry paste, place all paste ingredients in a food processor. Add a little of the coconut milk (enough to keep the blades going). Process well. I Place oil in wok. Turn heat on medium-high and add paste. I Stir fry until fragrant (about 1 minute), then add coconut milk. I Add wheat and stir. I Add kaffir lime leaves and cover the pan. I Turn the heat down to medium-low and allow to simmer. I Add bell pepper and yam/sweet potato. I Cover and cook another 10 minutes. I Finally, add snow peas, stir and continue cooking for 2-4 minutes. I Do a taste test for salt and spice. I To serve, place on a serving platter or in a large serving bowl. Sprinkle with fresh basil. I Accompany your curry with Thai jasmine-scented rice
