  6. Drain off any water from the now cooked vegetables and add to the pan with the potatoes. Also add the sugar and salt. Continue cooking covered on med-low heat.
  7. As soon as your potatoes are fork tender remove from heat and serve with rice.

      Yummy! I love curry food, but with not so much curry as it´s not good for my stomach and I do prefer other oil rather than sesame oil. Thanks for SHARING. Have a lovely weekend;-)

      Mama Kim, great hub. I have only ever had Thai curry with either prawns or chicken but would certainly give this a try as a 'healthy' change from all of that protein :o)

      Yummy! I'm a recent Thai food converter - I love the freshness, crispiness and little bit of a bite to their food. Coconut milk, lime, chilies - I love adding this to food dishes to jazz it up a bit. Thanks for this wonderful recipe idea! :)
