Sue Lau's Note:
This is a nicely spiced vegan curry that one can easily add bean curd or slices of meat or seafood to if they wished. They call this jungle curry because it has no coconut milk, and no coconuts grow in the jungles of northern Thailand. Not every curry needs coconut milk, and this is even great for those on a heart-healthy diet.
