I'm still gonna call this a one bowl wonder even though technically you need two and some cooked rice. However, you are cooking the Red Curry all in one bowl and all in the microwave, so I'm going to call it a win.  This recipe came about last year before we had a Thai restaurant in our town, now we have two but I still like making it myself.  One reason that I like to make it, sometimes they put MSG in it.  While some studies have shown there is no reaction to MSG, I think they are full of kaka.  I can tell you that I swell up, my tongue gets numb and I get slightly dizzy.  That is before I know there is MSG.  Why it's still being used, who knows.  It's also the one reason I had to stop eating Ramen, same with one of my nieces.  She cannot have MSG either.  Pretty much the same reaction I get.  Wow, that just took a right turn, didn't it.  Ok, back to the recipe at hand, Red Curry.  I love to eat red curry but then I really like yellow too but have never made a recipe for it.  Hmmm, maybe over the next couple of weeks. What I like about this recipe is the simplicity of it.  Pour it in, whip it up, heat and done.  I think you will like it too!
