For me, this is comfort food. It only take about a half hour to make, and with some fresh pitas, it's a fantastic meal by itself.

    Delicious with a kick, I only had Epicure Thai Red Curry seasoning so I mixed it with plain yogurt to get a paste. I also used cayenne instead of chili powder, it packs a punch!

    Soooo good! I didn't have any Indian red curry paste but after reading some other reviews I decided to go with Dinu's tip of using Madras Curry Recipe #95907. It worked perfectly for this recipe. Thanks for sharing this delicious, simple and healthy recipe.
