Recipe Notes

*Sometimes cardamom pods tin can live trickier to discover, depending on your grocery shop. These are what I role when I tin't observe them at the store. Whole Foods ordinarily has them as well!

*Same goes for star anise pods. I go them here when I tin't become them at the grocery shop.

*This is the Thai ruddy curry paste I function in addition to dearest when I tin can't make my ain!

*Make certain you purpose full-fatty coconut milk hither. The "calorie-free" material isn't most as proficient, especially for this type of curry.

*If yous tin't observe Thai basil, you lot can omit or role regular basil. It has a super unique flavour, then effort to detect it if yous can!
