too spicy!

Wondering if I did something wrong. This turned out SO spicy--and I do enjoy some spice (I usually go for 2 stars at a Thai restaurant) but this was too hot. I used only half the called for red curry paste (1.5 Tbsp as opposed to 3 Tbsp). I used the Thai Kitchen brand. Wondering if it was a typo--should that have been 3 TSP (teaspoons instead of tablespoons)? Otherwise it had a nice flavor. I will make again, just cut down the curry paste quite a bit.

RE: Too Spicy!


Thanks for pointing this out. We are going to modify this recipe to say 3 teaspoons or more according to your preference. This should help with the issue of spiciness.

Thanks again,
