    startnover's Note:

    We have a Thai restaurant in town that makes the best yellow curry. I found they buy their curry paste at a local Asian market and that was the key to this recipe. A lot of curries have potatoes in them and you can certainly add it to this one but I prefer it with out. I serve with Naan flat bread to scoop it up with.

      To the person who is timid about the pineapple, the best yellow curries I have eaten have all had pineapple I promise it adds a balancing sweetness that complements the mixture of flavors I also slice onions and put them in at the same time as the carrots.

      I made this by omitting the peas and basil. Instead I used about 3-4 cups fresh spinach. I also added honey because I like just a little more sweet and spicy, although, the pineapple does a great job of adding that extra kick of sweetness. I find it good practice to coat the chicken in the curry paste and cook the chicken that way before adding any coconut milk. I had never tried curry before and this being my first curry meal I though it was amazing. I'm hooked to yellow curry :) and I will always use this as my base recipe. Thanks so much!

      Instead of carrots, I used sweet potatoes for color. Delicious!
