  • What is "Healthified": We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the originals.
  • Variation: Like it spicy? Add 1/2 to 1 tsp (2 to 5 mL) additional curry paste.
  • Purchasing: Coconut milk and curry paste are both available at many supermarkets in the Asian foods aisle, or look for these specialty products at Asian markets.
  • Substitution: If you don't have cornstarch, you can use 2 tbsp all-purpose flour instead. Increase the amount of cold water to 1/4 cup.
