I hope I did everything right, this is my first recipe. I'm not sure were I found this, but I do make it often and we enjoy every mouthful.

I added a block of firm tofu and slightly reduced the vegetables and this was delicious. I needed more coconut milk to create enough sauce for all the ingredients. I was glad to find this recipe -- I came across it an airline magazine a long time ago but lost it. Thanks for posting!
