Wow! This dish is so delicious. “Best dinner ever” according to my 8 year old who helped make it.

I used 1.5kg chicken thighs, doubled the sauce and added carrot, capsicum and onion.

I’ll be making this again for sure.

Unfortunately, I was not a fan of this recipe. It tasted weird to me. Not like a thai coconut curry. Perhaps it was the sweetness.

Or go by the other Thai Fish recipes 🙂

Georgina, did you try it with fish? I am wanting to do the same. Just not sure of the times. I am probably going to have to guess.

Lovely dish. Followed recipe except I didn’t have red curry so substituted green curry.
Really enjoyed it and have leftovers …win, win 😁

My family love this! My kids are 2 and 3 and somewhat fussy but both times they have eaten it all.
I’ve made it with chicken thigh and chuck steak and we like it better with the steak.
I also use yellow curry paste instead of red and don’t use ginger.

My family loved this meal and as I had to feed 5 adults and 3 kids I just tripled the recipe and used drumsticks as well as thighes, I used yellow curry instead of red

Quick and easy to make resulting in a delicious curry that I’ll be making regularly for family and friends.

Nice mild curry, I love mild curries because I can no longer have spicy so this hit the spot. I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out perfect, we served ours with plain rice and naan bread. Thanks Kirsty for your recipe

its yum…i used yellow curry paste instead of red… bulked it with fresh onion and garlic and no teatowel trick so the liquid spread it further..served with jasmine rice and vegies, the most mildest heat at 1 heaped tbls… kids aged 6 to 15, plus hubby, all raved..
