I love Thai food, and this is one of the best tasting home cooked curries. You can cut back on the curry paste if it's too spicy.

This was an excellent recipe; all the ingredients made it taste very authentic. One thing I'd recommend, however - curry paste brands vary so wildly in terms of heat, I found that using the full amount of green curry in the recipe nearly took my head off!(I'm normally a '2 star' when it comes to thai food) Might be wise to start with half the amount and then increase it til it is spicy enough for individual taste. Also, I used thai eggplant instead (the round green kind) and they worked great, just increased the number as they are about the size of a golfball.)

This is a lovely curry, and very quick and easy to make. I used a rather mild curry paste (Recipe #43732), and next time will increase the heat. Also tossed in a bit of broccoli. Made and enjoyed for Pick A Chef.
