This is an authentic 5 star restaurant-quality Thai/Indian style dish that can be created at home. This dish is an amazing Thai dish, and one I could quite possible eat every day, it is THAT good! If you don't have any red curry paste or coconut milk on hand, I strongly suggest to purchase some just to make this recipe, you can find Thai red curry paste and coconut milk in any Asian, Indian or Latin American market or large food chains, I purchase mine at my local Super Valu store chain. Bypass this recipe if you don't have a palat for Thai or Asian-style dishes. If you prefer your apricots to stay a firmer texture, then add in with the chutney and cook about 1 minute.

This wasn't to our liking. It might have been something to do with Thai and Indian foods not really being related; the mix of the two cuisines just didn't work for us.

I made this last night and took the chance of testing on friends, which I don´t normally do!! It was an absolute winner! Mango chutney with Thai curry? Who would have thought it!! I had just used the last of the Red curry paste and took the chance of using Masaman. Had no red peppers in so used Spanish frying peppers. The rest was the same (I used 1 400ml can of milk) and my God, what a flavor! Thanks for this, a masterpiece.

Kitten this was a culinary marvel. What flavour. I'm still in heaven. I have made this wonderful dish twice already...and will be making it again often. I personally loved all the flavours in this dish. It was sweet, tangy, hot, spicy, smooth and flavourful. I served mine with steamed jasmin rice. Thanks for sharing another winner with all of rule.
