Having had a Curry recipe book given to me for Christmas, I thought it was about time to try a quick one after a long day in the office. Having all the ingredients apart from the Galangal, I popped by the shops on the way home to pick some up. It was very easy to prepare and cook and tasted great!
This is what the book said about it…
“Quick and convenient, this tasty Thai-style pork curry uses a mixture of different beans and envelopes them in a spicy sauce enriched with peanuts.”
