      This stuff is awesome!!!! I made this on the weekend with other Asian dishes. I substituted the chicken for beef strips. What an amazing flavour. Just like the locate Thai food restaurant. Thanks Sue for posting. Deb

      This curry is fantastic. I made it for dinner last night for DH and I and we both loved it. However, I didn't have any bamboo shoots, so I added some julienned carrots and some sugar snap peas. I also didn't have red curry paste, so I had to use curry powder instead. I love the flavour the kaffir lime leaves give to this dish and the bit of heat from the chilli is good too. I only added one chilli as I don't like my mouth burning too much, but my husband said he would have added more if he made it just for himself. The only thing I will do next time is to halve the amount of fish sauce or use soy sauce instead as it was a little salty for our tastes. We will definitely be making this curry again. :)

      I absolutely loved this recipe! (Of course I have always liked red curry.) It tasted just like the red curry chicken I got from a Thai restaurant last week. The only things I would do differently next time is a little less curry (I used 1.5 tbsp) and a little less lime (4 instead of 5 leaves). I may eventually consider making my own red curry paste for a unique flavor.
