"By the time I got done "tweaking" the recipe, it was delicious. However, as written, it written it was quite bland and boring. I added a coconut milk, snow peas, red curry paste and lime juice."

"Nice starter recipe for a person new to Thai cooking (that would be me). I added some curry, deleted the peppers and substituted carrot shreds and bean sprouts (raw, but did stir fry them first). I felt it needed a bit more zip so also added a touch of black pepper. Nice recipe, will make again."

"I am sorry but if this is the kind of dish you get in a Thai restaurant in your area, you are missing out. I did not think it had much flavor and it was not a very traditional Thai style at all."
