Make Coconut Curry Chicken in one pot in 30 minutes or less. It’s packed with delicious flavors and is the perfect weeknight dinner.

Pair Coconut Curry Chicken with rice and/or naan bread. A side of roasted carrots or roasted sweet potatoes would also pair nicely.

When you’re not sure what to make for dinner, creamy Coconut Curry Chicken always comes through.

It’s fast, flavorful, and healthy! This is one of my husband’s all-time favorite meals, and while I tend to prefer veggies over meat (hiiii  there, butternut squash curry), this is one of my favorites as well.

Coconut Curry flavor

Today we’re using red curry in this dish, alongside yellow curry powder and a good amount of coriander. If you’re wondering what coconut curry tastes like, it’s a bit sweet but mostly savory with hints of spice from the red curry. Red curry is made from crushed red chilies, garlic, lemongrass, shallots, ginger and fish paste. We amp up those flavors with additional garlic, ginger, and onions.

So as far as spiciness goes, I would rate this dish as mild, but it does depend on the brand of red curry you use. I’ve found Thai Kitchenยฎ is generally quite mild.

Coconut Curry Chicken FAQs 

What makes curry sweet?

  • Cooking the onions slowly and for a longer period causes the onions to brown and develop a sweeter flavor.
  • Coconut milk makes this curry sweeter than using regular cream.
  • We add a little bit of brown sugar (optional) for sweetness.
  • Coriander is a naturally sweet spice. Curry powder tends to be on the sweeter side as well (more on this below).

Curry powder has a unique flavor with both savory and sweet spices. Cumin, turmeric, and bay leaf give curry powder a deep, earthy and savory flavor while the sweet spices such as cinnamon and cloves add brightness and sweetness.

With all of the various coconut products, it’s hard to know what will work best in your coconut curry chicken. To help, I’m breaking it down below.

Coconut milk or coconut cream?

  • Coconut milk has the liquid consistency of cow’s milk. It’s the basis of most Thai curries and is made by simmering 1 part shredded coconut to 1 part water.
  • Coconut cream has a much thicker and richer consistency than coconut milk. Coconut cream is made from simmering 4 parts shredded coconut to 1 part water.
  • Cream of coconut is a sweetened version of coconut cream. It’s generally used in drinks or desserts. With all the added sugar, it’s not a great substitute for coconut cream.

Can I use coconut cream in curry?

In this coconut curry chicken, we use full-fat coconut milk. Lite coconut milk won’t thicken and give you a rich full flavor like regular coconut milk. Coconut cream tends to be too thick (and overpoweringly coconut flavored) for this coconut curry chicken and cream of coconut is far too sweet.

Coconut Curry Chicken additions

With just a few ingredients, creamy Coconut Curry Chicken goes from good to WOW. 

Our must-have additions: fresh lime juice, finely chopped cilantro (or basil!) a little bit of brown sugar.

Other great add-ins: chopped peanuts or cashews, fish sauce.

Variations

  • Coconut Curry Chicken and vegetables: This curry has some red pepper in it, but feel free to increase the veggies! You can add some carrot sticks (add along with red pepper) and spinach (stir in at the very end — residual heat will cook it down).
  • Coconut Curry Chicken thighs: Chicken thighs will work great instead of breast meat (use boneless skinless and adjust for cooking time).
  • Chicken Curry with coconut milk and potatoes: Try adding baby Yukon gold potatoes (to do this, I microwave whole potatoes for 5-8 minutes or until tender; cut them into quarters and add them in alongside the red pepper. This helps the potatoes catch up to the rest of the ingredients and yet still absorb the delicious flavors).

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil separated
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion diced (~1/2 cup)
  • 3 cloves minced garlic (~1 and 1/2 teaspoons)
  • 2 tablespoons finely minced ginger (from a 1 and 1/2 inch piece)
  • 2 teaspoons yellow curry powder
  • 3 tablespoons red curry paste (I use Thai Kitchen; reduce or increase as desired for spice levels)
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1 large red bell pepper
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast or thighs, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • Fine sea salt and freshly cracked pepper
  • 1 can full-fat coconut milk (NOT lite)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1-2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons fish sauce, optional
  • 1/4 cup cilantro and/or basil diced
  • Serve over/with: cooked basmati rice and naan bread with additional lime wedges
  • Optional: chopped peanuts or cashews

Instructions

  • Start by prepping ingredients: Dice the onion, mince the garlic, and mince the ginger. I peel the ginger with a spoon or vegetable peeler and then finely mince it. Thinly slice the red bell pepper into long vertical strips and then cut those strips in half horizontally.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons coconut oil in a large deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and saute for 3-5 minutes or until onions begin to turn golden. Add the garlic and ginger; stir to coat everything with the oil. Lower the heat to low and add in the curry powder, red curry paste, and coriander. Stir often for 2-3 minutes or until lightly toasted and fragrant.
  • Return the heat to medium high. Add in the remaining 1 tablespoon coconut oil and the red bell pepper. Stir for 1-2 minutes and then add in the bite-sized pieces of chicken. Sprinkle on salt and pepper to taste (I add 1 teaspoon fine sea salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper). Cook, stirring often for about 4-5 minutes or until the chicken is browned on both sides, but not cooked through.
  • Pour in the coconut milk, lime juice, and brown sugar (to taste; I start with just 1 tablespoon). Stir until chicken is cooked through (juices run clear and it is cooked to 165 degrees F) and curry is slightly thickened (See Note 1). If desired, stir in the fish sauce.
  • Serve over rice and/or with naan. Garnish individual plates with cilantro, basil, and/or crushed peanuts/cashews. Serve additional lime wedges by the side if desired.

Recipe Notes

Note 1: If you want a thicker sauce, you can remove 1-2 tablespoons of the sauce to a small bowl and (with a fork) whisk in 1 tablespoon cornstarch until smooth. Whisk this mixture back into the curry sauce.

    1. Great recipe! I tweaked it a bit based on what I had on hand: I used 1 whole 4oz jar of green curry paste by thai kitchen and tripled the rest of the recipe for 3lb of chicken. I added 5 serrano chiles and I also also subbed lakantao monkfruit sweetener (Golden) 2 Tbsp for the brown sugar. Plus alll the salt. No fish sauce needed. Came out restaurant quality!

    1. 5 stars
      Made this tonight as a last minute thing… IMMEDIATELY saved it to my favourites recipe folder. SOOOOOOO very very good. Thank you for this recipe!

  1. Weโ€™re super into coconut flavors this summer and have been embracing coconut water, coconut chips, and coconut milk! What better way to keep our affair with coconut going than this recipe. Especially love that the coconut sauce isnโ€™t super creamy or taking over the chicken. We are so excited to try, and will definitely be topping with Dang Coconut Chips!

  2. 5 stars
    I will be the first to actually review this recipe! It was delicious and so easy. I started with 2 TBsp. of red curry paste and found I could go to 3 without it being too hot. I did use the full amount of brown sugar and again did not find it overpowering. This recipe is a keeper!

  3. I love these Thai dish additions!
    I’m not Thai or even Asian but I love Thai food. Here are a few optional substitution ideas to try if you are feeling it:

    1. Adding fresh THAI BASILl to a delicious curry dish like this one adds a nice Thai flavor! I use 1 full cup of fresh in mine.

    2. PALM SUGAR is another ingredient that also provides a nice Thai flavor & is less sweet than sugar. If your grocer doesn’t carry it, you can find it on Amazon. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Honestly I’d wait til you have it; it’s a big part of the flavor in this recipe! (Technically you can substitute more curry powder, but I do think the red curry makes this dish so much better!)

  4. 5 stars
    I have made this last week for the first time, doubled all the ingredients for 12 guests for my birthday. Risky??? Maybe!!! But, there was nothing left at the end of the evening! I am making this again today for my daughter who arrived from France where she has been studying for the past 4 years.
    I search a lot the Internet for good recipes. This is a GREAT recipe that I will make again and again.
    Chelsea you have become my favourite cook outside of Europe where my family and I live (we live on the beautiful island of Cyprus). Keep up the excellent work!

    1. I am seriously SOOO happy to hear this!! And seriously so flattered. Thank you so much for your sweet comment and I’m sooo happy you all enjoyed this dish! Cyprus looks like quite the destination!!

  5. 5 stars
    Excellent. I have made many different versions of coconut curry and this is the best one hands down. Iโ€™m on Keto so I used brown swerve instead of brown sugar but other than that I followed the recipe exact. Delicious

  6. 5 stars
    I really loved this recipe. It was easy to make, and I had every item in my pantry. I was slightly concerned about a curry recipe without any tomato, but I found that the addition of lime juice and brown sugar brought the right balance of acid and sweetness that tomatoes would have had. The addition of fish sauce brought a savory umami to the dish. Perfect!

  7. 5 stars
    After my wife had a disappointing chicken curry dish at a local restaurant, I searched for a recipe online and came upon yours. I cooked it yesterday for lunch and it was bursting with flavors! Quite delicious! About the only thing I would tweak would be the heat level. I used 3 Tbsp of red curry paste, according to the recipe, so maybe I will just dial that down a bit next time as my wife doesnโ€™t like her dish too spicy. Two thumbs way up!

    1. Hey Jackie! I’m soo glad you enjoyed this! I haven’t personally frozen this dish before but I would imagine the curry would freeze well. Let me know if you try it! Thanks for your comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. 5 stars
    Excellent recipe! Except for one thing – you should marinate the chicken pieces in 1 c. yoghurt, 2 cl. garlic, S&P and citrus (2 med lemons – juice and zest) first. The sauce was great, but the meat was not juicy. Trying to duplicate our fave Indian restaurant, Sugharth. Hard!

  9. 5 stars
    I tried chicken curry for the first time this summer and I was instantly hooked. I looked around for a recipe to make it myself and I’m so glad I chose this one. For a first attempt at dealing with these flavors, it came out so well. This will definitely be put in my rotation for weeknight meals. Thank you for posting, it was seriously so good!

  10. 5 stars
    My husband and I made this for dinner last night and OMG was it amazing. We love Indian food but Iโ€™ve never been able to find a recipe that compares to what you get at the restaurant but this was even better than what we get in the restaurants! It had a tiny bit of heat but wasnโ€™t overpowering, there was a subtle sweetness to it but again not overpowering. Everything about this dish was perfect.

  11. 5 stars
    Possibly the best coconut curry Iโ€™ve ever made. Will definitely
    make this often. Followed the recipe exactly except did not use fish sauce. Thank you!

  12. 5 stars
    This was SO GOOD!!! I will definitely make it again. One question regarding the nutritional information… Does the carb count reflect the full amount of brown sugar(2T)? Also, does it include the rice/naan serving suggestion or just the dish itself? Thanks!

    1. So glad you enjoyed! ๐Ÿ™‚ It does include the brown sugar, but not the rice or naan since that will greatly vary depending on brands and how much ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. 3 stars
    I have to admit this didn’t really work for me. I recommend people marinate the chicken before cooking it, at least in some spices because I found it didn’t really absorb the flavours of the (good tasting) sauce. Also I’m not sure if this was just my coconut milk brand but I found it to be pretty runny and a lot more pale-coloured than in the photos here.

    1. Sorry to hear this wasn’t for you! Sounds like the coconut milk could definitely be part of the problem if your sauce was runny and pale; I’d try a different brand next time (Chaokoh is amazing!)

  14. 5 stars
    This was delicious ?
    I was nervous about making this, itโ€™s my boyfriends favorite, but it turned out so incredibly good, I added some cubed cooked sweet potatoes, zucchini mushrooms and sugar snap peas

    1. You can definitely add another tablespoon or so of the paste and some red pepper flakes for next time if you’d like ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad you loved it!

  15. 5 stars
    Iโ€™ve never posted a response, but felt I had to with this one. Iโ€™m always looking for different recipes and have tried a different chicken curry which I wasnโ€™t fond of. Made this for my husband, my picky 95 year old grandmother and myself. It was delicious! Followed recipe exactly and loved it! Thank you so much, will definitely make again as we all enjoyed it and finished our plates!

  16. 5 stars
    Three thumbs up!?? I followed the recipe, added potatoes, and used fish sauce. Delicious! I did at the end add plenty more curry powder, curry paste, salt, pepper, and lime juice. ???

  17. Hi.. your recipe seems tummy. I want to try it out. I am.just cant figure out what is yellow curry powder? Any substitute? Please get back to me. Thanks

  18. 5 stars
    Good recipe. Highly recommend it. I made it at dinner yesterday. Everyone like it a lot. Thanks a lot for posting such delicious recipe!

  19. 5 stars
    I made this for the first time for my in-laws and they absolutely LOVED it. Honestly, I think this recipe is better than going to a Thai restaurant. I am planning on making this again for Christmas with my parents. =) Thank you for sharing!

    I highly recommend this recipe if you are wanting to impress your guests!

    1. Wow what a compliment!! SO thrilled this recipe was such a hit and better than a restaurant ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks so much for the comment and review ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. Any idea if Yellow Curry Paste would work instead of Red Curry Paste? We have yellow but not red ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks!

  21. 5 stars
    This recipe is absolutely delicious! The flavors are perfect. My husband said it’s easily one of his favorite dishes I’ve ever made. Thanks so much!

  22. 5 stars
    Made this recipe and it was as easy and delicious as mentioned above! Definitely going to make it again in the near future.

  23. 5 stars
    Amazing! Better than any restaurant or jarred curry! This was my first attempt ever making a chicken curry.
    I shortened my cooking time by using rotisserie chicken, no fish oil or peppers, and doubled yellow curry since I missed the red curry purchase at the store.
    This delicious combination over white basmati rice and fresh cilantro is a must to try! Thank you for sharing!

  24. This looks delicious. Iโ€™m planning on making it tomorrow. I was just wondering if youโ€™ve ever made it in a crockpot or instant pot?

    1. I made it in the crock pot today and it was amazing. I put the onions and garlic in, put the chicken on top of them then put the ginger on top of the chicken. I mixed the coconut milk and all the seasonings together. Used honey instead of brown sugar. Then I Poured the mix on top of the chicken ???? I added the bell pepper in towards the end so it still had a slight crunch. Shredded the chicken and put it over brown rice???? So good! Thank you for sharing such a yummy recipe, would highly recommend!

  25. 5 stars
    Made this last week and my whole family loved it, so much so that it was requested tonight. Excellent recipe, beats take out by far!

  26. 5 stars
    Iโ€™ve never had curry before so I donโ€™t have anything to compare it to, but i followed your recipe and it is delicious! My husband said he had sauce at a Thai restaurant that tasted just like this.

  27. 5 stars
    This has become my favourite meal! I make it at least once a week. I’m actually obsessed! It takes all my willpower not to drink the leftover sauce lol. The best thai red curry I have ever had. Thank you thank you for the most amazing recipe!! (I like my curry really spicy and always add 2 thai red chillies with seeds removed and it’s the perfect amount of heat!)

    1. Haha!! I’m so, so thrilled you’ve enjoyed this curry Candice; thanks so much for the comment and review! ๐Ÿ™‚

  28. Can you use curry powder? Or where can you get yellow curry powder? Online not seeing powdered versions of yellow curry

    1. Hey!! Almost every grocery store should carry yellow curry powder which is what we use in this recipe!! Thanks for your comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. 5 stars
    Love this recipe! I would make it a little spicier next time, but the flavors are fantastic. Better than take out for sure. I am going to make it again tonight.

  30. 5 stars
    My husband said, โ€œYou knocked it out of the park!โ€ So good! I added strips of carrots, broccoli and spinach. Restaurant quality recipe!

  31. 5 stars
    So so good! Made this for dinner tonight. I love making curry and have tried a lot of different recipes, but this one has to be my favorite so far. I did use green curry paste, which is what I had on hand, instead of red. I will most definitely be trying this with the red paste next time to *really* try this dish! Thank you for this recipe!

    1. I’m so happy to hear you loved this so much! It’s one of my all time favorites! Thanks so much for your comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

  32. 5 stars
    My 15 year old daughter had to make 3 meals from home as one of her projects for her culinary course since classes are cancelled till at least late April.

    We chose this recipe for tonightโ€™s meal and she put it all together herself while I read off the directions. It was really easy for her to make and turned out delicious.

    We will make it again for sure!

    1. This is seriously the greatest thing! Your daughter sounds pretty awesome and talented! I’m so glad you guys loved this! Thanks so much for your comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

  33. 5 stars
    Thanks for this recipe. I made this for dinner tonight and even my picky husband liked it. I added spinach and garnished with chopped cashews. My son thought it needed more cayenne. I didnโ€™t have curry powder so I made my own.

    1. I’m so glad you guys loved this! That’s awesome you made your own curry powder. Thanks for your comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

  34. 5 stars
    My family loved it! Took me longer than the posted time- but to feed us all (8 in the household- including 3 teenaged boys) I had to triple the recipe so that adds prepping time! Also- I only used half the sugar amount- as we tend to like our Thai food a little less sweet. Half was perfect for us.
    Thanks for sharing your recipe!

  35. 5 stars
    So flavorful and easy. I followed the recipe exactly. Used 1TBSP each of brown sugar and fish sauce. My kids really enjoyed it. I served with coconut rice. It was a hit! This will definitely go into the rotation.

  36. 5 stars
    Great recipe. Used eggplant, green beans and cauliflower. Only had ground ginger (so used 1/2 tsp) and made a blend of spices including tumeric bc I didnt have curry paste. Annnd only had lite coconut milk – but it was delicious! Coming from harsh curry critics who lived in Curry Hill NYC! Thank you:)

    1. I am beyond happy to hear this! I’ll definitely need to try this with eggplant, beans, and cauliflower– that sounds delicious! Thanks so much for the comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

  37. 5 stars
    My daughter has to eat gluten free, which can be a little restrictive. However, this recipe fit the gluten free bill, and was delicious to boot.
    I did find that we needed to thicken the sauce a little, but using the corn starch instead of the traditional flour to thicken was a quick and easy fix.
    It took me about 40 minuets to get all the ingredients out, measured, and prepped (chopping, dicing, etc.) I find that I like the chicken cut into smaller, bite-sized pieces, and that doing so also decreased the time it takes for them to cook.
    We doubled the recipe, so there will be plenty of left-overs that can be quickly heated up.
    Well worth the effort!

    1. I’m so happy to hear you guys love this Coconut Curry Chicken and it works with your daughters dietary needs! Thanks so much for taking the time to write this comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

  38. 5 stars
    I made this last night and it was amazing. I did add a chopped up shallot, but followed the recipe exactly. I am going to add grilled shrimp next time and use boneless thigh meat instead of chicken breast. My daughters are 12 and 9 and they loved it. No leftovers which means it was amazing. Highly recommend….

  39. 5 stars
    I have made this twice in the last week! Itโ€™s going to be added to our weekly dinner rotation. Absolutely delicious and super easy. I added carrots tonight for some extra veggies and it turned out great. I also forgot to buy onion at the store and made it without and it was still amazing. Not one bite left over either time. Iโ€™m so happy I came across this recipe.

    1. I’m so happy this will be making it on the weekly dinner rotation! Thanks so much for your comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    This recipe was so, so good, and quick and easy! My husband and 8 and 9 year old boys loved it too, which is quite a feat! I used Patakโ€™s mild curry paste because I love the flavor and had it on hand. The only things I changed were ghee instead of coconut oil because thatโ€™s what I had and I added broccoli for some extra veggies! Thank you for this great recipe! Will definitely be making again! ????

  41. This was a delicious dish with wonderful flavor. I have a question, however, about doubling the recipe. I doubled all the ingredients which meant I had 6 T of red curry paste and 4 t of yellow curry powder. I also used 1 tablespoon of cornstarch per your instructions to thicken the sauce. Perhaps I should have used more cornstarch. The sauce was still very thin and the red curry paste seemed to separate from the yellow curry powder. The red curry paste also seemed a bit greasy. When doubling the recipe, should I have used less red curry paste? I also noticed that after the dish had cooled overnight all the red curry paste rose to the top as fat would. I scooped all of it off the top before warming the dish for a second meal. Would appreciate your thoughts on this.

  42. 5 stars
    Made this tonight for our family of 6. Everyone loved it! It has excellent flavor with the added curry powder and coriander. Definitely making naan with it next time.โค๏ธ Thanks!

  43. Made this curry dish tonight for dinner. We loved it! Once the prep was completed it was so fast and easy to cook.
    This is a repeat for sure. Thank you!

    This recipe is excellent!! If you can get your hands on a really good red curry paste this recipe shines! Yum!

  45. 5 stars
    I have to say this is one of my absolute favorite coconut chicken curry recipes. After experiencing the curries in India, I never thought I would be able to replicate any of the dishes; however, this recipe is an absolute game changer. I canโ€™t thank you enough for sharing this delicious, quick and simply amazing recipe. 10/10

  46. Really super base flavor!

    Just needs vegetables, even pineapple/apple if you’re an adventurist.

    Pretty much whatever you have around will bring texture and crunch.

    I like to mix and match with
    >carrots
    >onion
    >bell peppers
    >snap peas
    >bamboo shoots
    >water chestnuts
    >sweet potatoes
    >baby spinach
    >new potatoes
    >cauliflower
    >tomatoes (cored seeded and coarsely chopped
    >Cilantro/coriander
    >and the pre-mentioned fruits

    Just what I do and thought it might get someone creating.

    Happy cooking all, and thank you Chelsea!

    Absolutely love this recipe! Itโ€™s a weekly staple now! Added cauliflower, carrots and spinach. Always make a double batch in a big pot! Thank you!

  48. 5 stars
    I just made and it’s delicious. Can make it hotter (I was concerned it would be too hot, but it was fine). I added grated lime as well as the juice and added the grated lime to the rice! I will definitely make again. Thank You!

  49. 5 stars
    Made this twice already. Big hit in our household. I add 2-3 chilly peppers to add some heat and it turns out delicious! I normally donโ€™t comment on any recipes I use. This one I had to. Itโ€™s definitely a keeper.

  50. 5 stars
    This was really, really good! Will definitely make again. I added a can of rinsed chick peas and some frozen green peas at the end, and halved the brown sugar. Served with basmati rice and naan. This gave us our sorely missed restaurant quality curry, during the Covid shutdown, without having to eat it out if takeout containers. So delicious!!!

  51. 5 stars
    Loved this recipe as it was so quick and easy. I added chunks of par -boiled sweet potato and cut green beans for some additional crunch and cut. Verdict by all: Delicious

  52. Thanks for the tips! Made a diff recipe tonight and overcooked the chicken bc I cooked it before putting the sauce!!! I am going to try this next time!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    LOVE this dish! This was the first recipe of yours that i tried. Ive made it several times and itโ€™s always a family favorite!

  54. 5 stars
    This recipe is a new family favorite! We all absolutely loved it! After my husband took his first bite, he said, “Oh man. I’m going to be so sad when I’m done eating this!” ๐Ÿ˜‰ It’s hard to stop – it’s so delicious!

    1. So glad to hear it! Sorry I haven’t personally tested this recipe for the instant pot, so I’m not sure exactly what to recommend, hopefully someone else that has experimented with it can chime in! ๐Ÿ™‚

  55. 5 stars
    Amazing, tasted delicious, easy to make. I added some mango chutney and it was also delicious. Have made it a few time with different adjustment and vegetables and it’s always awesome.

  56. Ours was very bland. Thinking I didnโ€™t add enough salt? It was still delicious, but didnโ€™t have a ton of flavor. What size van did you use? The only one I saw at the store was the standard size can. Maybe I should add more curry paste next time?

  57. 5 stars
    This was SO good! I didnโ€™t have red curry paste so I used green (and used the whole jar ๐Ÿคฃ). Iโ€™ll use red next time but regardless…YUM!

  58. 5 stars
    Made this tonight and it was delicious!

    I added shiitake mushrooms, and spinach to the mix but that was the only change. Excellent. Will make it again!

  59. Writing this one handed as I woof this down! Delicious flavor but really wish it was SPICY, I used an entire jar of red curry paste. Suggestions? Thank you!

  60. 5 stars
    I love your recipe! I’ve made it so so many times and always tastes delicious! However, I was thinking to do it with shrimps instead of chicken today! Do you think it will taste good?

  61. 5 stars
    Thank you so much for this great recipe! Glad I went ahead and made a double batch. Next time I think I will use thin noodles instead of basmati rice. This turned out perfectly and is so delicious.

  62. This looks delicious – I can’t wait to make it tonight! I was wondering if you think adding the fish sauce makes a big difference? I’ve never used that before so I don’t have it.
