    Super good! I thought a little too thick, I would have added another can of coconut milk but didn’t have one. Family loved it. Next time I might add more coconut milk and make it a little spicier with some chili flake. Snow peas might be nice in there too. Thanks for an easy and delicious dinner!

    I found this one quite weak. But it could have been due to the quality of my curry paste. I had to nearly triple the amount of curry paste in order for this to have adequate taste. Otherwise it just tasted like something was ‘missing’. Countering that, I needed to add more peanut butter as well in order for the peanut taste to still be there. I like food authentic and on the richer side, so this is my personal taste. Other than that, the recipe was really good.

    Made several changes but this was a good starting point. We used smoked pork belly as the protein, sweet instead of white potatoes, and cayenne for heat. Delicious!
