    One of my favorite recipes from the Australian grocery cookbook-magazine, Hot & Spicy Cooking. Delicious! I serve this over hot cooked basmati or jasmine rice.

      Made this while my son was home from college, and he really enjoyed it. It is spicy, but the sweetness of the coconut offsets the heat. A big plus was the wonderful smell that filled the house! Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT8.

      this was great, spicy, but not hot. I added a little sweet chilli sauce, on the plate. Used chicken wings, followed the recipe except for the coconut. (ends up under , around etc the teeth) I nearly burnt it, added a little water and then a packet of fresh noodles. Thoroughly enjoyed it, also enjoyed the fact that this was something different to what I usually cook. thanks mersaydees
