This is a fabulous meal! I made it just for myself and had to FORCE myself to save half the meal for later....it was SO tasty.

Excellent! We thought it was really good. I served it with stir fried vegtables. Will triple it and make it for company next time and maybe add some edamame and serve it with potstickers and pad thai.

I made this last night and we both LOVED it. Only change I made was added more Rajah (hot) curry powder since we like curry. (I heaped tsp. then added approx. 1/4 tsp. after that total). I used fresh ginger - grated.. all the flavors came together so nicely. Cilantro and cashews topped it off.. we will definately have this again and will be using for company!

I've spent a lot of time in Thailand. This does not remotely taste like Thai. Poor flavor. We basically hated it.
