    Yeah baby!! This is my kind of dish. 6 Thai Chiles and a tsp of ground red chile?? That will wake up the old taste buds....;-)~ I still have some curry leaves in my freezer. Will be trying this one soon. Thanks for sharing... Jim

    This is another Winner. Since I live "on the road" like you I am sure you have found the absolute necessity to eat healthy vegetables and terrifyingly avoid the fast food that sets up like concrete in us while driving. I actually carry a small cook kit with me and when my cousin(business partner) and I share a hotel room we cook greens of all kinds for good health. I'll add this one to our repertoire. I especially like the tumeric, I use it a lot in many dishes. Who can afford saffron?
