Very good recipe, but I'd like to try to clear up some confusion: COCONUT MILK (not cream of coconut) is what is generally used for Thai Curry bases, and I believe that was the author's intent here. You should be able to find it in the international food aisle (not with the mixed drink materials). Curry paste is much stronger than curry powder -- I'd recommend no more than 1 teaspoon of the curry paste to begin (maybe even less), and then add to taste. 1 tablespoon will knock your taste-buds off!

Cream of cocounut will make this thicker, but coconut milk will be excellent, too. I use curry powder, not curry paste.

A decent recipe, but not much in it's own right. It's a good base recipe which you can add to or change, but alone it largely depends on the quality of curry paste (or powder) you use. I used low-fat coconut milk and curry powder, along with a dash of whatever garam masala ingredients I had on hand (a little cardamom, coriander, cinammon, and cumin). I also threw in a handful of raisins. Simple and satisfying dish over rice. My two-year old loved it!
