      This was fantastic and very easy. I added some veggies to this recipe (1 red pepper, 2 zucchini). I cut back the sugar to 1 tbsp. as well.

      I didn't have any lime leaves or hot peppers, but it still turned out very good (I used half a can of *very* spicy red curry paste). It is nice & fast too.
