this is very good, I added red curry paste, tofu and part of a bag of frozen asian stir fry mix veggies.  Oh, and of course siracha, cause I love it hot!


I've made this many times since my last post. A few things:

- I strongly recommend curry blocks (I get Golden Curry brand) over the powder; it seems to have more spices and flavor.
- If you can get them, get pounded-rice-cakes (not the crunchy snack food) for the soup. They're like dumplings, usually in little ovalette shapes or balls, refrigerated at Asian markets. They're delish in this curry.
- The coconut milk makes this curry really mild, so adjust the spices accordingly if you want it hot  ;D


This was great! It was very rich (because of the coconut milk). I used lime instead of lemon (I think it goes better with coconut anyway) and couldn't get curry powder so I got the stuff that comes in solid blocks (never had it before)... I like this curry because it is so simple :)
