This stew is a vibrant rainbow of color, a welcome departure from the winter whites outside my window. It has a complex and sexy combination of flavors. And the best part? It turns on that internal fire just a bit, and makes your hands and feet and forehead warm.
Most of the ingredients in this dish are easily accessible in any well-stocked grocery store. When I'm making Thai-style curries, I like using Thai Kitchen products, as they are high-quality and gluten-free. You'll notice I used their red curry paste, fish sauce, and organic coconut milk in the dish below. I'm not advertising for them, I swear! I just really like their stuff. You can find their products in the Asian food section of your local grocer, or online.
I'd recommend serving it with a dollop of Garlicky Red Chili Hot Sauce . Not necessary, but it amps up the burn just a bit, and that makes me smile. What can I say, I'm a spicy lady.
