I made this last night for friends using a massaman paste instead of the green paste. It was absolutely delicious. Both friends went home with the recipe. I can tell this is going to be a firm favourite!

Very good recipe but 4 tbsp Barts thai green curry paste gave an almost unbearably spicy result. Next time I'll try half the amount.

Already a favourite in our house. Extremely easy to make and delicious. Can't wait to serve it up for my (pretty fussy junk food addict) son when he's back from uni. I must admit, I thought I'd end up with parts of uncooked rice but it cooks perfectly.

Made this tonight and only used two tablespoons of Barts curry paste - still too hot! Will try four teaspoons next time.

lovely and tasty really easy midweek meal. I added baby corn but could easily add whatever veg is in the fridge, going to chuck some soya beans in next time.
