I sometimes shy away from Thai recipes because of the list of ingredients. Everything in this recipe is easy to find. This is from our local newspaper, the Democrat and Chronicle.

This made a nice lunch today! I liked the sweet and spicy, and how simple it was for ingredients and quick. I added extra curry paste and a whole teaspoon of sugar and served over rice. YUM!
