      Loved this! I forgot to add the lime juice, scallions and cilantro at the end and it was still amazing. I must have been too excited to eat it! I used a mild red curry paste and used about a tablespoon. It was flavorful but not spicy. I also used about 1/2 coconut milk and half chicken broth to make 2 cups, and that worked well too. What a treat!

      Yummy, yummy recipe, but I am known to never let a recipe stand as is. I actually used 3 tsp red curry paste and it still wasn't quite hot enough for my family. I also used sesame oil instead of the vegetable oil and also regular coconut milk and sticky rice. There wasn't enough spinach after steaming so my hubbie got all of it and I split the rice between me and my two kids. Oh yeah. I'll definitely make it again.
