13Please note - I add my vegetables 30 mins prior to serving as i like them a bit firm however if you prefer them soft add them at the start however they do become quite mushy by the end of cooking. I also add sugar to mine as it gives it a beautiful flavour and also can take a bit of the spiciness out.

I tried this for the first time and I give it a tick and recommend it. I used kaffir lime leaves instead of the recipe leaves as I grow them and love them. I wound right back on the sugar due to diabetes. I will definitely do this again and start tinkering to suit my personal preferences. For me it needs chilli for kick. Michelle Roylance’s post above re laksa, noodles etc really has me planning the next version of this soon.

Wow! So good. I cooked it for 5 hours plus the 30 minutes as my SC is quick but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Served it over some rice noodles. Can’t wait to eat the leftovers in a couple of days.

Amazing. So much flavour. I added glass noodles and a little dried chilli at the end to give more body.

I’ve only just found this comment!
So sorry it was so late

Definitely will be a repeat dish. The Palm sugar took the edge off the heat. I usually don’t like adding sugar to my dishes but in this recipe I grated it in. Next time I will add more veg in small pieces in the last hour of cooking. I served with basmati rice but nearly went the rice noodles.

BEST CURRY EVER! This dish is one of our household favourite curries, & great for winter. Even Mr 5 & Miss 2 ask for seconds every time I make it. I add green beans & serve with rice. I often make a double batch & freeze for winters days. Yummo!

I do this in my 5L with plenty of room still to spare 🙂

By far my best slow cooker dish I have cooked!
I cooked it for just under 6 hours, and used chicken breast instead of thighs.
Served it with rice.
AMAZING!! Highly recommend.

This is an absolutely amazing dish. I added some Thai rice noodles just to make it more filling and feed the whole family. Love love love it. It will be made often now. 😃

When I made this dish I LOVED it!
I wanted to be able to answer questions about how well it froze so I popped a serve in the freezer to find out.
Today I defrosted my serve and reheated it in the microwave and it was delicious as the first day I made it.
Love this recipe 🙂

This is my absolute favorite dish. Im about to make it today but just realised i dont have red curry paste. Do you think green curry paste would work instead.?

This was the best recipe I have made so far, very authentic. I added brown sugar to mine at the end . I served half as soup and the other half I added rice and served as a curry.

Delicious! To the point I licked the bowl! I added zucchini (replaced carrots) I also served with rice and kept the liquid for a laksa.

Super yummy recipe! The hubby even loved it and he doesn’t like soups.
I halved the recipe which ended up making just enough for 2 dinners for us and it just squeezed in my baby 1.5L slow cooker.
This will defiantly be a new staple in our house.

My new favourite dish. Can’t fault it in anyway. Very easy to make and tastes amazing! I added some sugar snap peas into mine as I had a lot in the fridge and they worked well in it also.
