I love Thai cuisine and created this one just from what I had in my fridge. It’s a little spicy, but not overwhelming. It has a very unique flavor and got raves from everyone!

This was a very tasty curry, the rum adds an interesting subtle flavour! I used a Thai Yellow Curry paste, which is mild to medium hot, often used for fish or shrimp curries. This was easily prepared and gave a quite robust but very enjoyable tomato based curry sauce, and it was ideal for two generous portions. Lovely, thank you, Dedee! Made for P-A-R--Y tag game.
