Introduction

Paneng curry is a spicy, sweet red curry made with thick coconut milk. It is one of the more popular Thai dishes due to it's sweet, mild taste. Although it's normally made with chicken, it can also be made with lamb, shrimp, beef or pork. It usually has a thick soup-like consistency. The dish is served with a separate bowl of white (jasmin or pandan) rice.

Note:
This recipe uses ready to use thai red chili (curry) paste. If you want the real full flavour, make your own paste. You can find a recipe here: http://www.bigoven.com/recipe/3679/penaeng
