Delicious! I tried with less broth to make a stew over rice.

Tried this on my kids last night. I left the lime, cilantro and toasted coconut on the side for them to play chef. Not only did they have fun, but they had 3 bowls each!

I made this today and it was the best coconut curry I've tasted; better than the soup i loved last week at an Indian restaurant (which inspired this recipe search). The things I altered due to various reasons were: Cardamom: thought I had it and did not so I added more cinnamon and nutmeg to the same 1/2 tsp it called for. I looked up cardamom substitute and that was the suggestion they gave me. Curry/turmeric: I did not use turmeric though I had it on hand; I tripled the curry powder like I always do in my curry dishes. Red pepper flakes: though I had them, I sprinkled a dusting of cayenne pepper at the onion stage instead, mostly because I love the kind I have, it's almost flaky looking, not fine powder. Nutmeg: not fresh Greens: I had a mix of greens that I chopped up small. Recipe didn't specify chopping but I wanted smaller pieces. I did everything else as is and it turned to be stellar. Wished I had the cardamom but I'll try it next time. It turned out very green looking but so good that it did not matter. Might try half turmeric at least to brighten it up next time?

If you just add the turmeric and not the curry powder there isn't enough zing. I also added plenty of coriander to give it more depth. Unfortunately I couldn't find fresh lemongrass at my nearest grocery store and used the tube kind instead...I wonder how much difference it makes?
