    Really easy, and it turned out well. Only modification I made was adding a can of mushrooms, which I quite liked.

    Maaaan this is so good! Next time adding more red curry paste and a little salt.
    Very good. Kids really liked it. They wished their was more sauce to cover the rice so I’ll make more next time. Added cilantro and cashews to the top.

    It was delicious and super filling. Add salt as the taste is a bit bland without it. Overall a great meal!

    This is a great baseline recipe that you can customize to your liking. After reading other reviews, I added a little more red curry paste, plus my staples of cayenne, garlic powder, ginger (fresh and ground) and turmeric. I also had onions, diced peppers and baby Bella mushrooms on hand. And I added tofu for extra protein, which I sautéed first. I also used a teaspoon of flour instead of cornstarch because I couldn’t find mine in the cupboard. Everything tasted amazing. The only change I would make would be to use less chickpeas, maybe half a can next time. They seemed to take over the whole dish in my opinion. I served the curry over brown rice.

    Really easy to make. Definitely add more spices because it's a little bland just going off the recipe

    super easy and loved by the family! i swapped the broccoli for carrots and the red curry paste for 2 tablespoons of yellow curry powder plus a bit of salt and cumin. I also bumped up the protein with fried tofu. We will be making this again!

    I added ginger, red pepper, and chunked pineapples in the can and saved the juice. I followed the instructions, but then put the juice from the pineapple in with the chick peas before also mixing in some pad Thai noodles to cook up while the sauce thickened. Ended up with a very satisfying meal and 2-3 days worth of leftovers. Will definitely be making this again.

    Great! It’s quick and easy, even for a beginner like me. I did add some salt and extra red curry paste,but otherwise this is definitely a go-to recipe for my family!!!

    Nice simple recipe but I had to use a lot more curry and added more seasonings like turmeric and salt. Also roasted the broccoli before adding it to the pan because I prefer roasted veggies. The coconut flavor seems to take the lead in this flavor profile.

    This dish is delicious. I made it today but I used green curry paste since I couldn’t find red. I did add some more seasonings for more flavor but I believe it’s great regardless.

    Added red pepper but kept it the same otherwise. It is spicy so if you don’t like too much spice,I suggest perhaps using only 1 tablespoon of red curry paste.

    I just added an extra can of coconut milk and had green curry paste but it was amazing

    Amazing! I added sugar snap peas and chicken and omitted the chickpeas. I doubled the recipe for all my extras and it turned out great! I served it with black beans and rice and fried plantains.

    Very tasty. The red curry and coconut milk makes for a very satisfying warm, stick-to-your-insides meal on a cold winter evening.
