      I liked this. Of all the Asian cuisines, I am most unfamiliar with Vietnamese food. This turned out to be a nice change of pace from the usual Thai, Japanese, and Korean food I make. The flavor wasn't as strong as I expected, so I added more fish sauce. I also would've liked to have used more lemongrass, or tossed in some kafir lime leaves near the end. Overall, quite good- thanks for sharing! [Made and reviewed for BEST OF 2012]

      This was delicious, and I will make it again! I didn't know what to expect because I've never used curry powder before ~ I sorta winged the lemongrass amount, because my lemongrass came in a tube! I left out the fish, and made it with shrimp only, and added some water chestnuts. I loved the finish with the lime juice and basil ~ Tagged for Auzzie Recipe Swap #71.- December 2012.
