This dish tastes very similar to the Lloyd Grossmen, thai curry jars, so I am very chuffed that I can make it myself and should save a packet as those jars are not cheap. I must admit, I think I was abit generous with the red curry paste (and i like my food hot), so may try 3 tbsp next time. I also added a red pepper to mine to bulk it out a bit as didnt think the recipe amounts were enough for 4 (my 3 (plus me) anyway). Apart from that, nice and simple and went down well with everyone :)

This was GORGEOUS! I used 2 tbsp of the Thai Taste red curry paste as it is quite a hot one and 3 tbsp of peanut butter as that was all I had and left out the sugar - it was spot on. I also added a mixed packet of mange tout and baby corn to vary the vegetables - was really yummy!!

Made this and it was lovely, my only criticism would be that it can get a little too sickly sweet (peanut butter and coconut milk), so next time I would probably add a bit of fish sauce. Admittedly, my husband and I were a tad greedy and did go for seconds!

Made this last night and it was delicious. Very easy to make. I don't like sweetcorn so substituted it for a pack of green veg that contained sugar snap peas, tenderstem broccoli and some asparagus. Not very thai but tasted great!

I love red thai curry and this one did not disappoint. Was a really nice change using fork too, even did it with leftover turkey from Xmas, lovely!

This was lovely. Easy to make and froze well. Not normally a fan of baby corn but perfect in texture and flavour for this dish.
