      This was great. It was exactly what I was looking for. I was trying to convince my wife that Thai currys were good, after a bad experience at a restaurant. This one not only did the trick, but gets requested regularly. One change I have made - I leave the soy/fish sauce out of the paste. The flavor of the fried mushrooms is enough.

      Outstanding combination of ingredients for a curry. I still prefer other curries to Thai green curry, but this was incredible. We added some additonal lemongrass, garlic, and galangal (Thai ginger) to the chicken as it was stir frying - that always gives the chicken a very fragrant boost. If you use fresh Thai green chilies, be warned - they're hot.

      Outstanding! The flavors in this are well-balanced and complex, all blending together pleasantly with the chicken and the mushrooms. I made this just as directed, and the prep time took a bit longer (about 25 minutes), but was ok. The curry was nice and saucy, and I served it in bowls with rice. Very good! Will definitely serve this again! Thanks, Friedel!
