Sometimes, you just want convenience. These were on sale a while back, and I thought it would be a great way to a) have a dinner for myself, with enough leftovers for a work lunch.
The instructions are simple enough:
Heat the coconut milk,
Note: this is an 8-inch saucepan, so let that be your guide. The box says it serves 5, which technically is true when you consider that a half cup of rice is a serving. You may need more to serve a family.
Add the curry paste,
Add 2 cups or so of meat and vegetables ( used all veggies: onion, carrots, mushrooms, yellow squash, and baby spinach. I did add the vegetables in stages, the toughest ones first and the spinach last of all.
Simmer for a few minutes.
Et voila! Dinner is served.
Of course, this is not as good as my favorite Thai restaurant, but it was pretty good, and a lot cheaper.
Also, I did not use the rice in the box, but instead used my own rice. It’s a Louisiana purple rice called Blanca Isabel purple rice. Read more here – https://icookforleftovers.wordpress.com/2013/02/06/farmers-market-find-blanca-isabel-purple-rice/
