Chef's Tips

Chicken thigh fillets can replace the pork. Curry can also be made with fish; adjust cooking time to just 20 minutes. Valcom brand of curry paste can be purchased in all supermarkets and works well with this recipe. if a hotter curry is preferred, leave the seeds in or add more chillies.
