I haven't made this yet but it sounds amazing. It's a Thai curry. I'm storing here on Zaar so I'll know where to find it!

This recipe is fabulous. I made it exactly as written. Served it over Jasmine rice. Observations: I would use thigh meat rather than breast, I would remove the ginger pieces OR mince the ginger before adding. I also gave fleeting thought to omitting the straw muchrooms - that would have been a mistake. The end result was a little soupy, but I don't think I would change anything as the flavor balance would be off. Dogs lapped up the remaining juices anyway. The curry is spicy if tasted separately. I used the 4 tbl curry paste, but once over the rice it is fine. I could even have it hotter.

Fabulous! I could drink the sauce.I used chicken legs and thighs and tripled the recipe for Happy hour event and served in chafing dish. I browned the chicken in a little oil and added the rest of ingred./Grated the ginger and used 1/2 sweetened coconut milk and 1/2 regular so left out the sugar. The mango was perfect addition. I'm learning I like everything the Mean Chef likes.

While this was a really good base for a curry dish, I felt like it needed some serious tweaks. There is way too much oil and way, way too much fish sauce; you could probably cut both ingredients in half and improve the flavor dramatically. Otherwise it was quite tasty; the mangoes really rounded out the flavor a lot.
