    HeidiSue's Note:

    This is a spicy dish, but the heat can be adjusted by reducing the curry and sambal oelek. It is quick and easy and it is so good. Time to cook rice is not included in prep time or cook time. Also...I often use lite coconut milk, it reduces the fat content and is still wonderful, just a little less rich.

      Tip: If you are worried about the heat, just add half of the curry and sambal in the first step. Try it after everything has been added and if it's not spicy enough you can then add more curry. If then you want it more spicy you can add more sambal, the sambal is more spicy than the curry.

      Wow, this one is a keeper. It was easy and fast and tastes like you spent a lot of time cooking. I didn't have the sambal oelek so I substituted Siracha sauce. This is a wonderful balance of sweet, spicy and hot. Next time I will also sprinkle cilantro and scallions on it along with the crushed peanuts and fresh lime juice.

      This is my favorite peanut curry recipe. I have small children who don't do spicy so I omit the sambel olek and it does just fine without it. I also like to toss in some carrots, red peppers, and cauliflower (not very authentic I know) to make it a complete meal for the family!

      Very delicious! Although I used siracha instead of sambal olek, and only put in 1 tsp instead of 3. I really liked the flavor and it wasn't too spicy at all. I'll definitely have to make it again.
