How did I miss this one! Made the March 29 version - it is a wow, just the kind recipe that you know you are going to make again - soon. Other than being genereous with the red peppers and using a little more of the curry paste made as posted. And yes the sour cream blends in adding flavor. Looks so appealing served on a white platter - it tastes as good as it looks. Going with this one to make the 'rice bowls' we love too. An all around winner at our house.

I made this recipe after the adjustments by Leslie and it was great! Loved the spice to it and may even increase it a little bit. I could not find yellow curry anywhere so I used red curry paste in place of that. I don't think it would change the recipe drastically. I also used leftover roasted chicken which made the recipe super easy to prepare. Mom loved it too. I really enjoyed the flavor of the sour cream mixed in. Leslie, you are one in a million, Love ya!!!
