One of my absolute favorite dishes ever! I love going out for Thai food but from the looks of this recipe, I see why it's an easier dish to eat out. There are a lot of ingredients and some that I wouldn't have too much use for besides this dish, such as fish and oyster sauce, as well as a Tamarind concentrate. I think I'll leave this one to the experts!
