If you like coconut milk, this is a delicious recipe!  And very simple.  You can even add other vegetables.  I'll probably try adding zucchini, muchrooms, peas, and eggplant, although others would be good too.

croy - I added everything to the pot all at once.


I'm  not sure to understand, when are we supposed to add the onion, cilantro and bell pepper?
