Oh. My. Goodness. This is so wonderful! Made for a wonderful Friday night dinner with DH! I used siracha (sp) hot chili sauce, not sure how much (just to taste) and used dried basil and fresh cilantro and used light coconut milk! I will say if you use the dried herbs, after you add the milk, make sure to simmer it for about ten minutes to let the flavor develop because it changes a lot! At first the coconut was very overwhelming and after simmering everything just blended perfectly and the flavors really shimmered in and out in a perfect blend! Served with sticky rice and can't wait to make again! :) Made for PRMR Tag January 2010!
