Tasty, easy recipe. Once you've got all of the ingredients prepped, the cooking goes pretty quickly, as well. I substituted low-sodium tamari sauce for the fish sauce. I do plan to make this again, but when I do, I'll add some additional vegetables, maybe some peas and red bell pepper which would also add some more color.

Madras curry powder delivers more intensity than regular curry powder. For less heat, leave the chiles whole.
