This is a wonderful Thai curry. It's a little thicker than the standard red curry recipes which helps it stick better to the noodles or rice. Andy says it's one of the best I've ever made! He had 2 helpings plus my leftovers!If you are in a hurry you could substitute commercial red curry paste, but I like making my own!
