This is a good recipe but it's not my favorite dish. It was too hot for my older daughter & enough curry paste so I could taste the cilantro which I detest. But my 5y.o. loved it. ;) The recipe is very good - a nice balance of flavors/textures - the raisins & mangoes take the edge of the heat.

  2. The day before, make the coconut milk by placing the grated flesh of an entire coconut, (you can use a blender or food processor to do this), into a bowl, pour 2 cups of very hot water over the coconut.
  3. Stir and let it cool. After it is cool, use your hand to squeeze coconut in the water to extract all of the milk. Do this for about five minutes.
