Since starting work at Sticky Beaks Tim has taken to cooking 1 meal a week. I'm the main cook at home so he hasn't really had the opportunity to do much other than the basics. I bought him the River Cottage Veg book the other day so I am really looking forward to eating all the delicious things from there. Tonight he made this delicious curry which was ready in 30 minutes. I couldn't help getting in there to photograph and document this recipe as I have been looking forward to eating it all week. This isn't the most authentic of Thai curries but it is really healthy, especially if you use low fat coconut milk and of course is really tasty too. As always this recipe serves 2 but can easily be doubled tripled etc.
