I love curry. That’s why I am very excited to share this recipe.  This recipe was  developed as a result of a discussion I had with a friend on a hike. She mentioned she’d found a class that taught how to make delicious thai curry with coconut noodles. Intrigued, I set out to make some upon our return from the hike.

Enjoy this easy to make, delicious and very nutritious recipe.

  • About 2/3 of a 1lb bag of frozen young Thai coconut or equivalent fresh coconut flesh (I use exotic super foods brand)
