Nearly Zen

A nice balance of spice and sweet. It's as close to the stuff Maam made when I was working at the Thai restaurant. Goes nicely with hot rice or even just warm bread. Freezes well, too!

This was much too mild (used much more curry paste) and liquid for me - ended up fishing out the veggies and cooking it down - at first. It did end up as a very nice curry. I added some fish sauce to the leftovers the next day, which I will do again when I make it next time. Thank you for a good start for a nice meal.
