I like this, but I used a full TABLESPOON of red curry paste and added two tsp of fish sauce. I've never had problems with watery lowfat coconut milk and wonder if those who did had forgotten to stir it thoroughly. As written, this would be badly underseasoned, but the hefty spoonful of the Thai red curry paste really gave a nice flavor.
