I've never made Thai food before, and I want to try this. If you used curry paste or fish sauce, how much would you use.

Hi.. I personally wouldn't know because I've never used curry paste or fish sauce. This dish is probably easier to make without them... It really would depend what the actual ingredients are in your curry paste. If they overlap with what is already in the list, I personally might try cutting the affected ingredients in half, and then using a reasonable amount of paste, which would probably add additional spices not mentioned in this recipe and could be good.

The only "Thai" really about this recipe is the coconut milk...

I made your recipe and I added 2 tablespoons red curry paste and 2 tablespoons fish sauce plus 2 red bell peppers and it was yummy. Thank you for the suggestion.

Justpiano - Thai Green curry paste has loads of cilantro in it, as well as vast quantities of fresh green chiles. If you've never tried it, do so but BE CAREFUL - it's searingly hot. It's not even close to Indian "curry".

If you look at Southern Indian dishes, you'll find they use a lot of coconut milk. Funny though, their food is searingly hot too!!!
