Sweet and sour mid-week delight! We love using Easy Kits for our mid-week dinners as they are easy and fun to make, very satisfying to eat and give you an opportunity to discuss latest affairs over cooking. Kaffir lime leaf, galangal, peanuts create a rich thick sauce, which is lightened by the flavours of fresh lime, chilli and basil. The delicious flavours can take you to any part of the world you may desire to visit.
My first time trying this kit and a little worried as my wife lived in Penang as a child. I needn't of been concerned, it was very tasty and she thoroughly enjoyed it. I would definitely make this again, highly rated!
I’m cheating, this panang curry and cucumber kerabu from your curry legends book. This is the leftover from yesterday which after today’s 15 mile lockdown walk in the cold is spot on. Always tastes better on day 2
Curry was delicious - rich and spicy (I think the spice rating probably needs reviewing - hotter than expected). Slightly disappointed with the mango salad spices which seemed an odd accompaniment. But overall, a very tasty dish.
