Love hot and spicy and love Thai stir frys and this one is to love! Curling fan that I am I choose special dishes, this year 'rice bowls' easily made and enjoyed while game watching. Served over Basmati rice this is so like the one I enjoy at one of my favourite Thai restaurants. Just now printed an extra copy for my recipe drawer.
