    This is one of my favorite "quick" dinners. It throws together so fast and is just delish! Like Kimke, I also use just one can of coconut milk. I also like to add a handful of fresh basil, the zest and juice of one lime, and a touch of garlic chili paste. Instead of adding veggies I usually throw in a bit of stir fried beef or chicken. A bit of info: this dish in Thailand (kaeng phed kai kap normai on)is often left as a "food gift" to the Buddhist monks during late summer (the time of Buddhist Lent). At that time the monks focus not on earthly things, but rather on meditation and teaching. Supporting the monks with food during this time is known as "making merit." This dish is a favorite offering as bamboo is in season and the orange of the curry is similiar in color to the monks robes. End of lesson. ;) Serve over jasmine rice with lime wedges. Very tastey stuff!!!

    I make this all the time and have finally perfected it to my family's taste. Here goes: 1 can of coconut mik, 2 Tblsp of red curry paste, 2Tblsp of fish sauce, 2 1/2 Tblsp of brown sugar and 4 1/2 cups of assorted vegetables(cauliflower, red bell, onion, potato, zucchini). Sometimes I throw in one juilenned chicken breast that I quickly stirfry in the pan for 5 minutes before going on with the recipe. It will cook further as you boil the vegetables in the coconut milk. This recipe makes a nice lunch every so often. ** Also I say 4 1/2 cups of vegetables but even more is good (1 more cup) because as they cook down alot of the water comes out of the veggies so you have alot of curry and also veggies are good for you!

    My husband loved this recipe and so did my 17 month old daughter! I couldn't believe she was eating all of her vegetables! I used light coconut milk and added a tbsp of corn starch b/c it comes out a little thinner without it! I will definitely make this again!!

    You'll get even better results if you simmer the curry with crushed but in tact lemongrass and ginger. Remove the peices when done. And taste before serving! I usually add more sugar and fish sauce. I usually use acorn squash, red pepper, beef, and bamboo.

    Very yummy! I only added 1/4 tsp of red curry paste [I love the flavor but can't take too much heat] and sprinkled some lemongrass for flavor as someone else suggested. Thank you for sharing this great recipe!
