Wow, wow, wow, this curry was a winner here. We loved this spicy, hot, extremely flavorful curry. Lovely complex flavors that all blend together beautifully. I served with rice stick noodles. Kudos JustJan for an incredible recipe that was quick and very easy to make, into my keeper box this goes. :)
