    Zee Merchant's Note:

    I got this recipe from Nigella Bites- the show. Loved it from the very first time I made it. The good thing about this recipe is that it also has a vegetarian version so no one misses out on the taste.

      YUMMY!!! The best curry Ive ever made, better than the local Thai restaurant! I used salmon and shrimp, peas instead on bok choy, AND i didnt even have the fish stock so I used chicken stock (i did use patisse -- fish sauce, tho) SO GOOD everyone wanted more, not one drop was left over! Make sure you dont shake the coconut milk can before opening -- you need the cream on top (1/2 the can).

      We loved this! I made the vegetarian option, as I'm not eating much meat.. and it was awesome! I didn't use the lime leaves, as I didn't have any, and I added some sliced snowpeas at the end instead of the bok choy. I used coconut milk as well.. and served with basmati rice. The milk did make it a bit runny, but the rice soaked up the juices nicely. My DD (11 months) ate it up... i just mushed the chickpeas a bit. Thank you for posting such a great recipe!

      Zee, Thanks for a great post! I followed the recipe mostly, only increasing the quantitiy of pumpkin (personal choice!) and adding some frozen peas for colour at the end. And this recipe absolutely calls for coconut cream - not milk! It would be way too runny otherwise. Thanks again!
