Thai Red Curry

   Today for lunch we were craving Thai curry so decided to play with the recipe and added a lot more veggies including spinach .This curry is packed with veggies and is very filling and you dont feel guilty eating a second serving because of the lite coconut milk .I did use the store bought red curry sauce to make life a little easier and made the dish with lite coconut milk to make it less in calories .It was an absolute hit and if I may say so myself better that the resturant one. This can be enjoyed with rice or noodles .Now this will be a staple curry in our house!!
