    We loved this recipe! I took one reviewers advise and kept the curry to 1 Tbsp and used 4 instead of 5 lime leaves, but we couldn't pick out the taste of the leaves in the recipe, so I don't know how 4 vs 5 leaves would make a difference, unless they weren't there at all. Also, for the chilis, I used 2 one inch long peppers from those pickled in a bottle, and removed the seeds. Not too hot, not too mild - just right. Anyway, I followed the rest of the recipe as written and I wouldn't change anything I did next time.

    This stuff is awesome!!!! I made this on the weekend with other Asian dishes. I substituted the chicken for beef strips. What an amazing flavour. Just like the locate Thai food restaurant. Thanks Sue for posting. Deb

    This curry is fantastic. I made it for dinner last night for DH and I and we both loved it. However, I didn't have any bamboo shoots, so I added some julienned carrots and some sugar snap peas. I also didn't have red curry paste, so I had to use curry powder instead. I love the flavour the kaffir lime leaves give to this dish and the bit of heat from the chilli is good too. I only added one chilli as I don't like my mouth burning too much, but my husband said he would have added more if he made it just for himself. The only thing I will do next time is to halve the amount of fish sauce or use soy sauce instead as it was a little salty for our tastes. We will definitely be making this curry again. :)
