    Fabulous! I loved this spicy dish! I did make a few changes, due to availability of fresh chilies...I had to used pickled ones which turned very well. I only used 6 and seeded them all, and the dish was still very spicy but not to worry the coconut milk cuts the spice. Also, the rice needed to cook about double the time listed in the recipe. Make sure to check it often, as not to burn. And finally, a little shredded chicken for my husband rounded it out! We loved it & the scent of it cooking is out of this world!

    WOW! super spicy, I love spicy food but this was very intense, I would half the amount of chilis. I added shrimp to the recipe, which was nice, but I felt I needed yogurt or something to cool the spice, my lips were still burning an hour later! I like this recipe but will definitely make some adjustments next time.

    This recipe should come with a warning label. I only used three peppers and no seeds and it had fire. Easy to make and it was a hit with our guests. I served it with Miso Chicken.
