    Sueie's Note:

    Vietnamese curry is not as heat intensive as Indian or Thai, but is more aromatic and subtle. Do not omit basil, this really does make the difference. Have also substituted skim evaporated milk with a few drops of coconut essence instead of coconut milk. Traditionally served with rice vermicelli.

      The traditional Vietnamese recipe calls for taro root (khoai mon) in lieu of the potatoes.

      Yummy and easy. It was a bit subtle for me, so I added Sriracha to it and it was delish!

      I made this with potatoes, coconut milk, Thai basil and the other ingredients listed. I did use more potatoes, but did not change the amounts of anything else. The lemongrass flavor is especially pronounced, and is not unpleasant. I think that this is a reasonably good recipe, but there was just not anything in the dish that jumped out at us and made us say, "delicious". It was an interesting experience, though. Thank you for the recipe.
