I wish I could rate it 3.5 stars since the flavor was lacking as written but since this is a great base for a simple at-home red curry 4 stars will do. To really taste the red curry flavors I ended up using 2 TBS of curry paste because the 1-2 tsp as written wasn't nearly enough. I also added 1/4 tsp of salt and more fish sauce at the end totaling 1.5 TBS all together. I also used full fat coconut milk lite is just watered down coconut milk at the same price as regular plus the fat is great for you.
Both my husband and I are from the south we like strong flavors in our foods. We found this one to be more of a soup than something to put over rice. Our first serving we tried without rice and it was just okay...very week. We put Siracha sauce to spice it up. We found the original recipe weak and too sweet...probably from the coconut milk. I understand that's the flavor of Thai cuisine. I added broccoli and carrots instead of just the 1/2 cup peas called for and the recipe could still have used a load more vegetables. I even added 1 lb of chicken more than what was called for. This recipe is just not for us...sorry! Pros: Healthy Cons: Very weak flavored a little too sweet tasting for us
Incredible flavor As I said in my cons I didn't have all the incredients (red curry one) but I did happen to have the components of them (chili pepper paste lemongrass paste ginger etc) so I 'winged' it a bit. I added some fresh zucchini along with the cauliflower. I was amazed at the flavor. Will definitely make this again! Pros: Can adjust to your likes modify vegetables Cons: Some ingredients not readily available so need to be ready
Quite good and tasty This is a very good dish. I don't usually cook so as a novice I was very impressed both with myself and this dish that it came out so good and tasty-I'll definitely be making it again! Pros: Very flavorful sauce chicken delicious really good taste all-around Cons: Sauce was kind of watery
The recipe turned out excellent! After reading the reviews I doubled up on the curry paste. Recipe was a bit watery and no flavor was lost. My husband loved it! Would definitely make this again. Heena Atlanta GA
My boyfriend was just diagnosted with high blood pressure and we luck upon this recipe. With all the different ingredients it made for a very flavorful meal where we didn't really miss the usual amount of salt. Teisha Landover MD
It definitely needed flavor modifications and not a typical 'curry'. I had to add a substantial amount of curry paste to get the heat right. I think it is a good healthy dish but if you are looking for traditional curry this isn't it. But it was still good and healthy with added spices and more paste. md Walla Walla WA
I used an extra tablespoon of curry paste (and added some chili sauce) but it still wasn't as spicy I would have hoped. Next time I'll use a full can of lite coconut milk instead of 1/2 broth 1/2 coconut milk. I think that'll improve the texture too.
One of my family's new favorites! I doubled the curry and used 2 dozen fresh basil leaves (add with spinach) for a an additional flavor kick. For less watery sauce use regular (not lite) coconut milk (does take away from the "heathly factor" a bit). YUM!
