I had this dish at a local Thai restaurant and fell in love. The chef was kind enough to give me some guidance in how to make it. It is surprisingly easy. Goes nicely over basmati rice.

I actually made this recipe up myself, almost exactly. I saw it in my email this morning and decided to see what it was like, and it's just like mine! This is a great dish, and filling even without the chicken, a great meatless meal. To the person who commented that they couldn't believe it didn't have "curry"... Curry powder is a mixture of spices of widely varying composition based on South Asian cuisine. Curry powder, and the contemporary English use of the word curry are Western inventions and do not reflect any specific Indian food. So the fact that this has a spice mixture can make it a curry.

The reason this recipe does not call for curry powder is that Thai curries do not use curry powder!! Curry powder as we think of it is actually a blend of spices that is used in Indian cooking. This blend often includes cumin, coriander and turmeric which this recipe does have listed as ingredients. Thai curries use fresh or dried chilis, ginger, galangal, lemongrass and coriander among other things to make a fresh curry paste. That said, I'm sure you could make this into a delicious Indian-style curry by adding curry powder to your liking.

Couldn't believe the recipe didn't actually call for curry...Not sure if that was a mistake or not. But I added 1 tbl. of curry and only put in 2 tsps.of cumin. I used the whole can of coconut milk just because I love it so. I also added long beans (chinese green beans) cut in 1/2 pieces. It came out fantastic, esp. over jasmine rice. A wonderful fall recipe!
