I love the spices in this. Just a little bit hot, with the flavor of curry that I love. It warms me up inside. I'm always watching my pepper plants which I brought indoors over the winter to see if they have a few peppers on them to put in something like this. My Thai dragon plants have been giving me peppers all along (with a little help!) When I run a little low, I like to visit the Asian grocer for a big pack of green chillis (which are almost just as good), but I like the red ones best.
