This recipe was a great base, but I did make a few changes. I used 1 TBS of curry paste and half broth/half water for a little more flavor. I thickened the sauce a bit with cornstarch as well. I topped each bowl with toasted coconut, red chili flakes and some peanuts for crunch. I always leave meat out until the very end (after cooking it) so that it doesn't get tough. There's definitely flexibility here too which is nice - this time I used pork and green curry paste but can certainly use any other meat or curry paste.
