    This was amazing! I love panang curry but don’t get it often. I was amazed at how easy and accessible this recipe was, especially for someone who tends to be a fairly boring cook. It was exactly what I wanted to satisfy my craving and i felt even better knowing that I made it! This will definitely be on frequent rotation.

    1. love it! thank you, Emily, for letting me know that you enjoyed this one. it’s an oldie but goodie imo!
