Thai Red Vegetable curry


I am moving back to Thai today..I am making the most popular thai dish.I love thai food so much..They are spicy and coconut which I always love..I am planning to post many thai dishes soon..I live in a place where i cannot find galangal and lemon grass..I know those are important in thai cooking..But I always want to try this dish,so I bravely made this dish without those two..but still it came out great....The red curry I made was really good..You could make double the batch and freeze it,so you can use it whenever you want...I served this dish with roti,but this goes well with rice...Please try this dish and let me know what you think...
