    I also made this one with chicken as my hubby wanted chicken curry to go with his rice. Turned out very good indeed. Since i dint have kaffir lime leaves, i added some lemon grass and a bit of lemon rind, Added a bit more of water to make it thin. Thanks you so much for such a wonderful recipe....we all liked i t very much.
