TIP For spicier curry, add additional red curry paste, to taste. Want even more zing? Place 2 pieces each lemon grass, lime leaves, galangal and bird eye chilies with the curry paste. Simmer 30 minutes. Remove all pieces with slotted spoon before adding chicken (or shrimp or Marinated Tofu) and vegetables.
