      I love Thai food and Thai recipes don't get much tastier or easier than this. Made as written (after stealing some lime leaves from a neighbour's tree). I almost always have these ingredients on hand, so I will make this often. Thanks very much for posting.

      Wow. I am so glad I made this recipe. This is not something I would ordinarily have tried, but I did because of the Zaar World Tour event. What a find this recipe is!! I'd rate it more than 5 stars if I could. This is a fabulous combination flavors and textures. Just a hint of spice but really pretty mellow. I absolutely loved the sweet potatoes in this (I used 2) and the creaminess of the coconut milk. This was devine served over jasmine rice. For the tamarind paste , I found a tamarind paste concentrate in the Asian aisle of my grocery store. Since it was a concentrate (and the jar recommended 1 t. for 6 servings), I used 1 t. of it and it was perfect. Also, I minced the garlic instead of leaving it in the larger crushed state. Try this recipe. You won't be disappointed!!! ~Made for ZWT6 Zee Zany Zesty Cookz~

      What a taste treat. This thai dish was perfect. It was quick and easy to make, the chicken was tender, and we really enjoyed the delicious sauce, which was thick, rich and creamy, with a subtle sweetness and very flavorful. We really enjoyed the addition of the tamarind, sweet potato and cherry tomatoes in the dish. They helped to create a memorable flavor. I did double the amount of red curry in the dish (personal preference only). Thank you so much for sharing a recipe that I will make again.
