    What a delicious recipe! My husband asked me to add it to regular rotation immediately. I used a full cup of tomato instead of 1/2 cup and still felt like I could have used more. Also used canned instead of fresh peas and added a bit of fish sauce towards the end, then served over Jasmine rice. Dish was quick and easy enough for a weeknight dinner, but good enough for casual company.

    The coconut milk makes all the difference. Really imparts that true indian flavor. We typically don't use red curry but I enjoyed the spice it brings to the dish. A similar recipe with yellow curry instead is found here - - give it a try.

    Lacked depth and cohesion. Too Americanized

    Really deep, complex flavors, without being too spicy. I used regular coconut milk (couldn't find light), and added the greater amount of curry paste. Came together nice! A great alternative to your regular weeknight dinner. :)

    This is listed as a vegan recipe, but then states in the introduction that it includes an ingredient (red curry paste) that is not vegan by inclusion of 'ghee' or clarified butter. Please check your recipes carefully before posting them under incorrect headings!

    Fellow vegans: please note that not all Red Curry Paste contains ghee! As a matter of fact, the most commonly used grocery store brand, Thai Kitchen, is vegan, as indicated on their website:

    I love this recipe and make it many times during the summer when yellow tomatoes are available at our farmer's market. We like hot food, so I actually use about 3.5 TB of curry paste. I also add a dash of fish sauce and chopped fresh basil and cilantro on top. Jasmine rice is an excellent accompaniment, with a simple vegetable like steamed broccoli or quickly sauteed bok choi along the side. My husband always eats two servings, I eat one, and have one left for lunch.
