Make this as spicey as you want or as mild. This is one Thai recipe without peanuts it is from the figment of my imagination, tweaked twice. This is the type of recipe you may change ingredients at will , use up left overs etc etc. Have fun with it. I like to serve it over Chow Mein Fried Noodles. Add fresh Jalapeneo peppers too if you like. There are many Hot/sweet Thai Chili sauces but I like UFC brand. If you like your veggies well cooked steam the carrots until tender before adding to the pan.. I like mine crunchie so I use them raw.
