    Just made this and the flavour is delicious. I added different veg (just what I had in the fridge really) mange tout, baby corn, tomatoes and green beans but I would recommend putting the veg in later as it was a bit soft after simmering for 18 mins. Great flavour though.  -  17 Apr 2012


    Something else. I did this in a slow cooker, cooking it on low for six hours, adding sugar snap peas and baby corn. This is an absolutely lovely thai curry and so simple to make in the slow cooker.  -  05 Oct 2010


    Cooked this tonight. Doubled the quantity, left out the fish sauce (because I didn't have any...). Substituted zucchini with cauliflower. A big hit with the family!  -  06 Jul 2014  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
