Lovely dish. Very quick to make and tasty too. I replaced the beansprouts with tinned sweetcorn and used red curry paste instead of green as that's what I had in the cupboard.

Very quick and easy, and extremely tasty. I used John Torode's thai green curry paste from the prawn squash and pineapple curry on this site which is easily the best thai curry paste I've made (and better than the shop bought jars by a mile). I doubled the veg and used 100g basmati rice which I just cooked the usual way before tipping in at the end. I also steamed the broccoli briefly before adding as I find otherwise the stalks are half cooked and the florets turned to mash. Will definitely be making this again!

To make this recipe even quicker, easier and cheaper for midweek, I replaced all the veg with a pack of stir-fry veg mix. It's a household regular now!

Fab, tasty, quick meal for mid week. I omitted the beansprouts (just coz I didn't have any). Had a nice kick.
