      So simple and so yummy! I also add a small amount of coconut milk and serve over noodles. It really is delicious. Thanks for a great recipe.

      A meal the whole family enjoyed. I used half of the oil without trouble. I also used 1.5 red chilies (didn't have green) and it was spicy enough for us--cleared the sinuses. Lovely flavors and I agree it makes a nice light meal.
