I. Love. Red. Curry. Well… I basically love all curry. For the longest time, I would just grab the paste off the self, mix it with coconut milk, and be on my way. All that is fine, don’t get me wrong. However, with a few added ingredients you can really kick up the flavour and freshness of your favourite curry.
Tips for Cooking: Feel free to swap out and veggies for ones of your preference. I added water chestnuts last time I made this and it was awesome. If you want more spice, add a Thai chilli into the mix.
