Cook's Notes

Look for curry pastes in your supermarket's Asian-food section. Read labels closely: Some contain shrimp paste or fish sauce, while others are vegan. Store opened paste in the refrigerator for up to 6 months.

Delicious. Curry added excellent flavor to simple ground pork and chunky eggplant. The coconut milk and cilantro along with chives and jasmine rice was so easy and tasteful. My only addition was fresh ground pepper, which brightened the flavor for us along with the fresh squeezed lime. Simple yet exotic flavor to others. Salad with veggies and mandarin oranges and oil and vinegar dressing was a great accomniment. M. Stewart always has the best flavor. Thanks.

Have made this several times and shared the recipe with friends who have asked. I have added 1 Tbs of fish sauce to the curry. Excellent
