For a hot moderately hot curry, start with 2 tablespoons of curry paste, a teaspoon of crushed peanuts or crunchy peanut butter and a teaspoon of salt. Add these ingredients to a can of coconut milk and simmer.
The oil will start to separate out of the coconut milk when it's ready.
Add sliced or julienned vegetables, bamboo strips and Thai basil.Unfortunately, in the winter, basil doesn't grow. This dish is prepared with carrots, onions, peppers, napa cabbage and fennel.
In the summer, I'll post a proper green curry.
