This is wonderful. I used a bought green curry, paste and added broccoli and green beans instead of the eggplant. I almost didn't add the entire 3 tsp of sugar, but am glad I did- it balances the flavours nicely. Will make the paste from scratch next...moreEval in loved it
Fantastically easy to make and tastes better than many I have in Thailand. Good tip on the chillis, 4 seemed to suit the family nicely :)experimentalcook in Abu Dhabi loved it
