luvs, that is a great recipe!
It sounds like it would be a pretty presentation as well.
I think I may print it out and then start morphing the recipe to make a few different combos, as it would be fun to have a platterfull of 3 different puffs
I'm thinking this one, a mexican one with chipotle topped with avocados and maybe a sweet-ish one with dried cranberries...
you've got me thinking now- thank you so much!

Just saw this recipe (I know REALLY observant since it has been around for a while) and am planning on trying out on the family. But I have a question, can you get green curry paste at regular store? Oops second question, is it really spicy? Also do you know about how many puffs you can make from one recipe?

hi, icy.
yep, you can get green curry paste at the grocery store. i can get it around here at the more upscale grocers on the ethnic foods aisles. i use thai kitchen brand, and it has a kick to it, but it's a very pleasant sort of spice. not overwhelming at all as long as you don't use TOO much.
i don't have a number on the amout of puffs; it depends on how much batter you use per puff. it always varies for me.
