    Amis's Note:

    In the days when travel through various parts of Thailand required journeying through areas of jungle, the people had to make do with what was available there. This recipe is so named because the ingredients and cooking method made it a suitable dish for the jungle. Best eaten in the presence of monkeys, tigers and snakes to keep it more authentic. :D Posted for Zaar World Tour 05

      Great spicy curry!!! The flavors in this are awesome. I did stray a bit from the recipe, by incorporating the jalapenos into the curry paste. It was a mistake, because it came out fiery hot! But the taste, oh so good - even as I scorched my little taste buds! I added some coconut milk to try and temper it, and it was still tasty. As we live in the middle of the jungle on the southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica, I can assure you that this was eaten in the presence of plenty of monkeys and snakes. Nix on the tigers, but we have spotted some pumas and jaguarundi's. :-) Thanks for posting a tasty curry recipe. Made for My 3 Chefs 2013.
