Simple Yellow Curry

I think I’ve got this right right. If you try to make this please let me know what you think. This recipe was born out of flavours I put in my dhal, then one day I wanted to make a curry with coconut milk again. I can not make green curries because they will NEVER compare to Sujet Saenkham ‘s  so i no longer try, i just buy them at his restaurants for my fix.

This is really simple and can be done in 30 minutes. Plus the Turmeric is now a superfood so it has to be healthy. Check the VIDEO
