    Awesome dish!!! I think I put a little too much fishsauce though, just a bit salty as a result. Other than that I was very impressed. Just goes to show that its possible to make Thai curry without a jar of paste.

    I cooked the chicken separately as my sister is vegetarian. The sauce tasted great over my roasted chicken and over my sister's tofu as well. Great recipe.

    I just ate a whole bowl of this curry! It was delicious, my whole family loved it! I also added snow peas (which were going bad and needed to be used up) and cilantro at the end, as well as lime juice (lime juice makes a lot of difference!).
    Thanks for posting :)

    Thanks for the recipe - I want to try a curry for the first time and I have a question - which "curry powder" do you use? Is something you buy? I know there are lots of curry types and also pastes - which one works best here?

    I tried this recipe and it was awesome. I also didn't use the spinach(because I was out) and added broccoli. My husband was very impressed. This was my first attempt at Curry. Thanks!

    I made this a couple of nights ago, and it was superb :) Only changes: I omitted the spinach, added sweet red pepper chunks, and a touch of commerically prepared red curry paste. I also added some lime juice & zest along with the lemon...FABULOUS! Thank you, BeepBoop :)

    This was outstanding! I added a bit of rice wine vinegar to give it a little extra sweet and sour punch. The leftovers are my lunch today, and I've been looking forward them all morning.

    This looks really great. Love curry, and am always trying to avoid ones that ask you to throw in pre-made pastes. Thanks!
