I don't have anything to grind the spices so I used the Gourmet Garden Thai Seasoning. 5 tables***ns, and a carrot and a potato to bulk it out and omg it is magic.

This was really light and quick to put together. Not enough flavour punch for me though. Would add more spices to the curry paste mix next time.

I love this recipe! It packs more flavour & just enough chili kick, than my green curry recipe (which is all heat)
De-licious!!!
