Rather bland and far too runny. The tomatoes seemed out of place too. Would not recommend this one I'm afraid.

Neil - Nov 17, 2019

Our first Simply Cook recipe - we loved it! Felt like something you would get in a nice restaurant.

Chris - Nov 17, 2019

Always a good recipe. I’ve seen some of the comments saying how thin the sauce is - that’s how it’s meant to be and how you’ll get it served in Thailand. I added baby corn and mange tout as the Mrs doesn’t like peppers.

Tatyana - Nov 16, 2019

Absolutely loved it. So easy to cook

Charlotte - Nov 16, 2019

Loved it. Full of flavour.

Sam - Nov 16, 2019

Sooo delic. Added extra chillis and made coconut rice and spicy rice. Both tasted great with it
