This was Weight Watchers?!?!? It was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good! Definately making again and again. Served over rice- the fam glommed it down. Thanks for a great waist watcher recipe!
This has become a family favorite we use again and again! We love the bananas and lime. It really adds depth of flavor to the recipe. Spicy and flavorful, but also balanced enough to please less adventurous palates. What a great Thai recipe!
This recipe is a definite pleaser. Even the wife, who doesn't have an exotic pallet, said this one is a keeper. The wife and kids didn't want to try the bananas, so you might want to go with a neutral vegi substitute like carrots, bamboo shoots, etc, or maybe even pineapple chunks, but try this one as is the first time, and then experiment. I think you'll want to add this one into your rotation, even if you are not much into exotics or curries. And its easy to come out as a Thai cook on your first try with this easy to follow recipe. Full-fat plain yogurt also works well.
