Your classic chocolate cupcakes needs a revamp with a non-traditional Thai green curry twist.
We are here with an exciting fusion recipe - The Chocolate Thai Green Curry Cupcakes. The muffin has a deep chocolate flavour and wonderfully moist texture, with just the right amount of spicy kick and citrus taste. Your regular muffins are now going to be so boring in comparison. The ganache filling just adds another layer of chocolate-y goodness and the cupcake pairs perfectly well with a cup of green tea and some peanuts on the side. This is a must-try dessert for this weekend, after all this cupcake is just as decadent as it is beautiful.
